Designed Modular Proteins as Scaffolds To Stabilize Fluorescent Nanoclusters.Biomacromolecules. 2015 Dec 14;16(12):3836-44. doi: 10.1021/acs.biomac.5b01147.
Designed consensus tetratricopeptide repeat (CTPR) proteins with specific binding capabilities have been used to stabilize fluorescent gold nanoclusters. The fluorescence signal of the protein-stabilized clusters is sensitive to ligand recognition; thus the complex is suitable to be used as a sensor.
