A fluorescent activatable probe for imaging intracellular Mg2+

Author affiliations

Abstract

An activatable BODIPY probe for in vitro detection and fluorescence cell imaging of free Mg2+ without interference from Ca2+ is described. Fluorescence amplification of the probe is observed upon detection of physiological concentrations of Mg2+ due to reduced rotation of the fluorophore and effective chelation by a quinolizine-based core.
