A coumarin-benzothiazole ratiometric probe of ATP was designed and synthesized. The probe is based on incorporation of benzothiazole scaffold as a donor and coumarin nucleus as an acceptor in a single Förster resonance energy transfer/fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) sensing platform. The sensor can detect ATP in aqueous solution with high selectivity over other nucleotide polyphosphate (NPP) anions. Binding of ATP to the sensor results in modulation of FRET efficiency between the

A limit of detection (LOD) of 94.5 nM was quantified for FRET sensing of ATP by the probe. In addition, Job plot analysis revealed 1:1 binding interaction between the probe and ATP. The FRET probe was successfully utilized in monitoring ATP hydrolysis by apyrase in aqueous solution.
