Water-soluble oligofluorenes bearing N1-alkylcytosine side chains as turn-on and turn-off materials in telomere DNA length sensing

Abstract

Water-soluble cationic and anionic oligofluorenes bearing N1-alkylcytosine side chains, namely OF-1 and OF-2, were synthesized. The photoluminescence (PL) intensity of an aqueous solution of OF-1 decreased on the addition of (TTAGGG)m as telomere DNA models. In contrast, the PL intensity of OF-2 increased on the addition of DNA.
