Biological Activity for Acridine Orange hydrochloride

Key information: Acridine Orange hydrochloride is a nucleic acid binding dye. Cell and organelle permeable.

Used for: cell cycle and apoptosis determination, for visual detection of nucleic acids on agarose and polyacrylamide gels, for autophagy analyze.

Application: suitable for flow cytometry and fluorescence microscopy.

Properties and Photophysical Data: emits green fluorescence when incorporated into double-stranded DNA, red fluorescence when bound electrostatically to phosphate groups of RNA or single-stranded DNA, and orange fluorescence in acidic conditions. Excitation and emission maxima (λ) are 502 nm and 525 nm, respectively (green, double strands)/ 460 nm and 650 nm, respectively (red, single strands)/ and 475 nm and 590 nm, respectively (orange, acidic conditions).

This product is supplied as a hydrochloride salt, the stoichiometry of which is batch dependent. Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis to obtain the batch specific Net Product Content.
