Aggregation, red-NIR emission and light-up upon nucleic acid G-quadruplex binding have been investigated for a prototype core-extended naphthalene diimide, which is capable of fast cellular entry and nucleolar localization. Both high-level colocalization with an anti-G-quadruplex antibody and nucleolin displacement reveal that the compound targets and thus makes visible nuclear DNA G-quadruplexes.

Abstract

Aggregation, red-NIR emission and light-up upon nucleic acid G-quadruplex binding have been investigated for a prototype core-extended naphthalene diimide, which is capable of fast cellular entry and nucleolar localization. Both high-level colocalization with an anti-G-quadruplex antibody and nucleolin displacement reveal that the compound targets and thus makes visible nuclear DNA G-quadruplexes.
