Activity sensor to detect immune response

Activity sensor to detect immune response

The activity sensor illustrated in reddish-pink with small, green attachments is shown here in its application to detect organ transplant rejection. T cells secrete the enzyme granzyme, here in gray, which kills cells but also severs the fluorescent green signal molecules from the activity sensing nanoparticle. The green signal molecules make their way into the urine, where they give off a fluorescent cue. Credit: Georgia Tech / EllaMaru Studios work for hire / press handout
