A chemosensor is a molecule capable of transforming chemical information, such as the presence of a particular metal ion, into an analytically useful signal.
A metal-ion chemosensor comprises a metal recognition and a signal-transduction domain that is triggered upon ion binding.
Current projects are the extension of the coumarin family of chemosensors, the development of novel chromophore classes, and the further definition of the nature of the vesicles containing imageable zinc.

 Development of chemosensors for iron(III) and zinc(II)
A Chemosensor is a molecule which can translate the presence of a sample component into a measurable signal, here fluorescence.
It is shown that the mechanism of operation of this sensor is the Fe(III)-specific release of a fluorescent molecule from the non-fluorescent sensor.
Part B of this thesis describes the synthesis of a coumarin-based chemosensor suitable for the imaging of Zn(II) in live cells.

Chemosensor is a molecule that reacts reversibly with a chemical analyte and gives a measurable signal in responce.
The simplest fluorescent chemosensors are based on aromatic groups such as anthryl ones linked to amino groups.
Fluorescent chemosensors are high sensitive, and this properties allow the researchers to use small concentration of them.

 An overview of the sensory receptors regulating cough | Cough, Volume 1 - Mirror @ Uni Potsdam
Airway chemosensors are derived from both the nodose and jugular vagal ganglia, as well as from the dorsal root ganglia [13-15].
These conflicting observations have lead to suggestions that in conscious animals cough-evoked by chemosensor stimuli relies on cortical processing of the stimulus, in which the activation of a subset of airway chemosensors generate the conscious perception of airway irritation and promote the urge to cough [3].
Chemosensor-evoked potentiation of cough may reflect convergence of cough receptors and chemosensors onto common brainstem neurons responsible for generating cough [14,22], and shares many similarities with the interaction between cutaneous mechanosensors and chemosensors in the spinal cord, which is thought to underlie the manifestation of aberrant pain states [Reviewed in 22, 63].

If the chemosensor is in solution, the method comprises: contacting a sample with the chemosensor to form a test solution, irradiating the test solution at a wavelength sufficient to excite the fluorophore, measuring the fluorescence emission of the test solution, and determining the concentration of metal in said sample based on said fluorescence emission.
The first embodiment of the chemosensor is described in detail below and demonstrates the feasibility of exploiting metal-dependent structure modulation as the basis for trace analyte detection.
A device comprising: the chemosensor of Claim 1 immobilized onto a solid support, a means for irradiating the chemosensor, and a means for detecting the fluorescence emission of said chemosensor.

Cues from “distant” sources are sampled using olfaction chemosensors called aesthetascs on the antennules.
The arrangement and shape of these chemosensors affect how much odor-containing fluid is able to penetrate close to the antennules during odor sampling.
This study hypothesizes that olfactory chemosensor structure may change as a function of animal size and gender.

We have succeeded in coupling the disparate methods of supramolecular chemosensing and microfluidics to create a novel supramolecular microfluidic optical chemosensor (µFOC).
A micromolded serpentine channel has been patterned with sol-gel or polymer films that incorporate a lanthanide-modified cyclodextrin supramolecule.
These results demonstrate that the most intricate signal transduction mechanisms of supramolecular optical chemosensors are preserved in µF environments, pointing the way to a new avenue of exploration for the development of optical chemosensing devices.

For fluorescence chemosensors, fluorescence energy transport between polymers as well as through a polymer backbone must be optimized to realize high sensitivity.
Besides the sensitivity studies, the effect of receptor design on the selectivity of a potassium chemosensor was investigated.
By analyzing the effect of the side group bulk on every other repeating unit to the sensitivity, we have shown that the detection mechanism is co-facial interpolymer aggregation induced by potassium binding.

For physical sensing the analyte is not in equilibrium; it is trapped in the recognition site — thus the light signal is always on [8,9].
While this makes for a dreadful chemosensor, it is wonderful physical sensor of phenomena that occur on very large length scales.

In contrast, sAC is directly regulated by bicarbonate ions suggesting it functions as the physiological carbon dioxide chemosensor.
Additionally, as the only identified bicarbonate/carbon dioxide chemosensor in mammals, sAC may also be involved in fluid reabsorption in the kidney, fluid secretion in the ciliary bodies and choroid plexus, and metabolic regulation in response to nutritional signals.
We are currently testing these hypothesized physiological functions by making inducible, tissue-specific knockouts of the sAC gene in mice.
