Abstract

We report on a naphthalimide ratiometric fluorescent probe for the real-time sensing and imaging of pathogenic bacterial glucosyltransferases, which are associated with the development of dental caries. Using a high-throughput screening method, we identified that several natural polyphenols from green tea were GTFs inhibitors that could eventually lead to suitable oral treatments to prevent the development of dental caries.
