- Considering that hydrogen sulfide (H₂S) is an endogenous signaling molecule involved in numerous biological processes, a method for monitoring H₂S as a powerful tool for investigating its complicated functions and mechanisms is urgently demanded. Herein, a bioluminescent turn-on probe was reported based on caged strategy for the detection of H₂S in vitro and in vivo. This probe will help us understand the intricate contribution of H₂S to a variety of physiological and pathological processes.
