Scholarcy highlights

  • We have developed novel nucleic acid probes that recognize and report the presence of specific nucleic acids in homogeneous solutions
  • These probes undergo a spontaneous fIuorogenic conforma-tional change when they hybridize to their targets
  • When introduced into living cells, these probes should enable the origin, movement, and fate of specific mRNAs to be traced
