Fluorescent and luminescent probes for detection of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species

Abstract

Oxidative and nitrosative stress induced by ROS/RNS play crucial roles in a wide range of physiological processes and are also implicated in various diseases, including cancer and neurodegenerative disorders. Sensitive and selective methods for the detection of ROS/RNS based on fluorescent and luminescent probes are of great use in monitoring the in vivo production of these species and elucidating their biological functions. This critical review highlights recent advances that have been made in the development of fluorescent and luminescent probes employed to monitor various ROS/RNS (132 references).
