Janelia Fluor® 549, SE
Fluorescent dye; supplied as an NHS ester for coupling to primary amine groups. NHS ester can be converted to relevant substrate for use in self-labeling tag systems, e.g. HaloTag® and SNAP-tag®. Suitable for confocal fluorescent imaging and super resolution microscopy (SRM) techniques, such as dSTORM (live and fixed cells) and STED. Cell permeable. Excitation maximum = 549 nm; emission maximum = 571 nm; Quantum yield = 0.88; Extinction coefficient = 101,000 M-1cm-1; A280 correction factor is 0.169.
We also offer Janelia Fluor® conjugated antibodies and custom conjugation services with our sister company Novus Biologicals.

Application of Janelia Fluor® Dyes in Cardiac Tissue
Application of Janelia Fluor® Dyes in Cardiac Tissue - Left - Widefield fluorescence image of muscle tissue from an adult pig heart, displaying the distribution of collagen VI in the interstitial space between muscle cells. The sample was labelled with a primary ab against collagen VI and a secondary ab conjugated to JF549 (#6147). Scale: 50 μm. Middle - An adult pig heart tissue section, 10 μm thick, labelled with abs against SERCA2ATPase, exhibits the intricate structure of the sarcoplasmic reticulum. A super-resolution image (top), obtained by exploiting spontaneous photo-switching of JF549 (dSTORM), shows superior detail to the diffraction limited widefield image (bottom). Scale: 200 nm. Right - A single isolated Wistar rat cardiomyocyte stained against α-actinin, displaying its periodic structure localised at the ends of sarcomeres (Z-discs). Widefield fluorescence of JF549 (left), prior to illuminating with a 561 nm laser to induce photoswitching and produce a dSTORM super-resolution image (right). Scale: 1 μm.
