Next-Generation Fluorogen-Based Reporters and Biosensors for Advanced Bioimaging

Abstract : Our ability to observe biochemical events with high spatial and temporal resolution is essential for understanding the functioning of living systems. Intrinsically fluorescent proteins such as the green fluorescent protein (GFP) have revolutionized the way biologists study cells and organisms. The fluorescence toolbox has been recently extended with new fluorescent reporters composed of a genetically encoded tag that binds endogenously present or exogenously applied fluorogenic chromophores (so-called fluorogens) and activates their fluorescence. This review presents the toolbox of fluorogen-based reporters and biosensors available to biologists. Various applications are detailed to illustrate the possible uses and opportunities offered by this new generation of fluorescent probes and sensors for advanced bioimaging.
