Tailoring silver nanodots for intracellular staining

Author affiliations


Through tailored oligonucleotide scaffolds, Ag nanocluster syntheses have yielded thermally and cell-culture medium stable silver cluster-based emitters. Optimizing ssDNA stability has enabled creation of highly concentrated and spectrally pure nanocluster emitters with strong intracellular emission. Both fixed and live-cell staining become possible, and intracellular delivery is demonstrated both through conjugation to cell-penetrating peptides and via microinjection.
