summary for metal sensors
Achieved solid Zn(II)/Cu(II) selectivity through a stereochemical approach

Developed a new approach for analysis: CPE

CPE may be used to improve contrast in detecting metal ions by fluorescent, chiral ligands with low background

CPE may be used to diminish interference from fluorescent non-analytes

CPE needs further development

why caged sensors
Why Caged Sensors
  • In cuvette: investigator controls the start and stop of enzyme catalyzed rxns
  • In live cell: the cell controls the timing and during
  • Caged sensors can be delivered in inert forms and activated on demand
  • Give precise temporal control over sensor activity

conclusion for caged pkc sensor
Conclusion for Caged PKC Sensor
  • Caged sensors can be used to probe PKC activity at G2/M in live cells with temporal precision, providing a way to interrogate enzymatic activity at any point during the cell-division cycle.
  • PKCb is implicated in NEBD of PtK2 cells.

It is active just prior to NEBD, not immediately after.
