- ... Silver has been widely used for disinfection. The cellular accumulation of silver ions (Ag⁺) is critical in these antibacterial effects. The direct cellular measurement of Ag⁺ is useful for the study of disinfection mechanisms. Herein, we reported a novel genetically encoded RNA-based sensor to image Ag⁺ in live bacterial cells. The sensor is designed by introducing a cytosine–Ag⁺–cytosine metallo ...
