  • Patent number: 8835632
    Abstract: The presently disclosed subject matter provides dyes having an improved photostability, biosensors comprising such dyes, and methods of use thereof, including methods for detecting target molecules in a sample under test and for live-cell imaging. The dyes can include a binding member, including a biomolecule or fragments thereof, which can interact with target molecules of interest and can be specific to a given conformational state or covalent modification, e.g., phosphorylation, of the target molecule. The presently disclosed dyes can be used for detecting changes in the binding, conformational change, or posttranslational modification of the target molecule.

  • Publication number: 20140243534
    Abstract: Halo-organic heterocyclic compounds are described, in which at least two halogen atoms are bound to a nitrogen-containing heterocyclic terminal moiety of the compound, with at least one of such halogen atoms being iodine or bromine. Also described are polymethine dyes based on these heterocyclic compounds, and dendrimeric compounds and conjugates of such polymethine dyes. The polymethine dyes are characterized by enhanced properties, e.g., brightness, photostability, sensitivity and/or selective affinity that make them useful to target cancer cells, pathogenic microorganisms, and/or other biological materials, in applications such as photodynamic therapy, photodynamic antimicrobial chemotherapy (PACT), cancer treatment, selective removal or attachment of biological materials, antimicrobial coating materials, and other diagnostic, theranostic, spectrum shifting, deposition/growth, and analytic applications.
