  • The mouse immunoglobulin G (mouse IgG) as a kind of bio-molecule was labeled with two different luminescent colloidal semiconductor quantum dots (QDs), green-emitting CdTe quantum dots and red-emitting CdTe quantum dots in this work. As a result of the fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) between the two different sizes nanoparticles with mouse IgG as the binding bridge, a significant enhancement of the emission of the red-emitting CdTe quantum dots and the corresponding quenching of the emission of green-emitting CdTe quantum dots were observed. The relationship between the concentration of the mouse immunoglobulin G and the fluorescence intensity ratio (I a/Id) of acceptors and donors was studied also. Under optimal conditions, the calibration graph is linear over the range of 0.1-20.0 mg/L mouse IgG. © 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
