- Fluorescent imaging probes have revolutionised cell biology by monitoring cellular objects. However, the lack of fluorescent probes with high selectivity for RNA has been a drawback. Thus, selective RNA binding for fluorescent sensors is essential. Here, we report the selective fluorescence enhancement upon addition of RNA. By exploiting a selective recognition of small tetra-cationic probe 1 for RNA, we also explain the possible binding mode for RNA. As a membrane-permeant fluorescence probe, 1 provides selective imaging of RNA not only in human neuroblastoma tumour SH-SY5Y cell line used for Parkinson's disease but also in the unicellular green alga cells. Further exploitation could open new opportunities in neurotoxin and cancer biology. © 2014 © 2014 Taylor & Francis.
