Description

Along with glutathione, biological thiol cysteine (Cys) plays important roles in many biological processes such as cellular detoxification and metabolism in living organisms. Changes in intracellular Cys concentration have a profound effect on these biological processes. Given the critical importance of Cys homeostasis in biological systems, a strong interest has emerged in developing effective probes to detect and image Cys-rich proteins. In this oral presentation, the synthesis and evaluation of probes which we are working on and would be used to label Cys-rich proteins in biological systems, especially in redox systems, will be presented.
