Structural and evolutionary approaches to the design and optimization of fluorescence-based small molecule biosensors

Kaczmarski, Joe Alexander; Mitchell, Joshua; Spence, Matthew; Vongsouthi, Vanessa; Jackson, Colin


Biosensors that selectively report on the presence of specific small molecule analytes have applications in many fields of research, medicine and biotechnology. Here, we review recent advances and emerging approaches in the design and optimisation of genetically encoded fluorescence-based small molecule biosensors. We discuss how natural sensory proteins can be exploited to produce novel biosensors and the strategies for optimizing ligand specificity and fluorescence readout. Finally, we...[Show more]
