Biological Activity for HADA
HADA is a fluorescent D-amino acid. Suitable for labeling peptidoglycans in live bacteria. Results in strong peripheral and septal labeling of diverse bacterial cell populations without affecting growth rates. Displays mitochondrial outer membrane permeability. Excitation/emission λ ~405/450 nm.
Applications for HADA
Figure 1: Investigating mycobacteria cell wall formation using FDAA HADA. Image showing FDAA HADA incorporation in log-phase growth of WT, Δ L,D-transpeptidases (LDT) and Δ L,D-transpeptidases (LDT)comp cells. Scale = 5 μm.
Baranowski et al show FDAAs are incorporated asymmetrically by L,D-transpeptidases.

Figure 2: Using FDAAs HADA and RADA (Cat. No 6649) to study peptidoglycan enzyme and substrate distribution, and the role of polar cell growth and peptidoglycan segregation over time. Image shows peptidoglycan segregation over time. Left to right - 2 mins HADA pulse (cyan), 45 min outgrowth, followed by 2 min RADA chase (magenta) in WT Msm cells. New cell wall (magenta), oldest cell wall (cyan). Scale = 5 μm.
