Abstract

Two-photon microscopy (TPM) has become an indispensible tool in biology and medicine owing to the capability of imaging the intact tissue for a long period of time. To make it a versatile tool in biology, a variety of two-photon probes for specific applications are needed. In this context, many research groups are developing two-photon probes for various applications. In this Focus Review, we summarize recent results on model studies and selected examples of two-photon probes that can detect intracellular free metal ions in live cells and tissues to provide a guideline for the design of useful two-photon probes for various in vivo imaging applications. In search for metals: In this Focus Review, recent model studies and selected examples are described of two-photon probes that can detect intracellular free metal ions in live cells and tissues to provide a guideline for the design of useful two-photon probes for various in vivo imaging applications.
