Bioluminescent Quantum Dots

David Evanko Bioluminescence is widely used for in vivo imaging of nude mice. By conjugating luciferase protein to quantum dots, bio- luminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET) turns these useful fluorophores into a new class of bioluminescent probe. … When injected into mice, these bioluminescent quantum dot conjugates produced good signals with no background after injection […]
