Cysteine -- Detection, Fluorescent probes, Dosimeters -- Applications to biochemistry
A fluorescent chemodosimeter for cysteine detection was developed based on a tandem conjugate addition and intramolecular cyclization reaction. The method exhibited an excellent selectivity for cysteine over other biothiols such as homocysteine and glutathione.
