Abstract:

The central objective of this project was to see if a fluorescence-based sensor employing a biological or biomimetic molecule as a transducer could demonstrate high sensitivity, selectivity as well as rapid and reversible response to an analyte such as CuII or ZnII. A key goal was to see if the sensor figures of merit could be optimized by modification mutagenesisof the transducer molecule among the figures of merit were the affinity, selectivity, stability, and response speed of the sensor. Results of that work are described in the ONR grant Final Reports of Drs. Carol Fierke and David Christianson.
