Molecular Beacon

 

The beacon is a nucleic acid probe with a hairpin-shaped structure in which the ends are self-complementary, bringing a fluorophore and a quencher into close nanometric proximity. The metal particle quenches the fluorescence of the organic molecule because of near-field deexitation. The fluorescence is restored when the probe binds to a complementary nucleic acid and refolds.
