Abstract

We synthesized fluorescence-labeled probe compounds bearing AMCA (1), NBD (2), and dansyl (3) groups as the fluorescent functionality. In these probe compounds, NBD-type probe, 2, showed leaf-opening activity at 5×10-6 M. The bioactivity of 2 is one-fifth as strong as that of the natural product, potassium isolespedezate (6). We carried out the binding experiment using 1 in a plant body.
