Abstract

We synthesized a novel cyclooctyne-based clickable fluorescent probe with versatile properties such as high cell-membrane permeability and free diffusibility in the cell. Our probe "FC-DBCO" was conjugated to an azide-modified mannose via a Cu-free click reaction in living HeLa cells and displayed intracellular specific fluorescence imaging with low background signals.
