Zhou, Y., Li, J.Y., Chu, K.H., Liu, K., Yao, C., and Li, J.Y. (2012) Fluorescence turn-on detection of hypochlorous acid via HOCl-promoted dihydrofluorescein-ether oxidation and its application in vivo. Chemical communications (Cambridge, England). 48(39):4677-4679.
We report three new water-soluble dihydrofluorescein-ether probes FCN1, FCN2 and FCN3 for the detection of hypochlorous acid (HOCl), which were designed on the basis of a specific HOCl-promoted oxidation reaction. This work also provided a useful method to monitor the accumulated HOCl in specific organelles using a zebrafish model.
