Researchers develop Raman imaging probes for detecting enzyme activities

26 April 2023 | By

Japanese researchers have developed activatable Raman probes based on 9CN-rhodol, offering a promising tool for detecting multiple enzyme activities in heterogeneous biological tissues. This new molecular design strategy allows for highly specific and sensitive detection of enzyme activities, offering potential applications in disease diagnosis and biological research.


Signalling mechanism for zebrafish fin regeneration identified

4 August 2016 | By Tokyo Institute of Technology

Certain species of amphibians and fish have the remarkable ability to regenerate tissue. Advances in molecular biological analyses have allowed researchers to identify specific molecules and signalling mechanisms involved in tissue regeneration. Fgf signalling is one such key mechanism...
