PINBOARD SUMMARY

Functional single strand DNA able to stabilizes small cluster of silver atoms for application

1) Size and colour - Single strand DNA-templated silver nanocluster has the size of 2 nm in diameter. The extremely small size of this element emits fluorescence colour. We can manipulate the colour type of this DNA-AgNCs by simple change on the bases in the sequence.

2) Application - To date, DNA-AgNCs able to detect a variety of analytes (i.e. ion, small molecules, amino acids, DNA and protein). There are also plenty of studies shows that DNA-AgNCs able to perform bioimaging with better quality than the conventional fluorescent probes.
