Pricing Availability Delivery Time Qty
Cat.No. 6150 - PA Janelia Fluor 646, SE | C34H31N5O5Si
Description: Photoactivatable cell permeable fluorescent dye; supplied as NHS ester
Chemical Name: 2,5-Dioxo-1-pyrrolidinyl 3,7-di-1-azetidinyl-2'-diazo-5,5-dimethyl-2',3'-dihydro-5H-3'-oxospiro[dibenzo[b,e]siline-10,1'-indene]-6'-carboxylate

Biological Activity

Photoactivatable fluorescent dye; supplied as an NHS ester for coupling to primary amine groups. Non-fluorescent until activated at 365 nm. Compatible with self-labeling tag systems (e.g. HaloTag® and SNAPtag® ). Suitable for single molecule tracking and super resolution microscopy in live cells, specifically live cell sptPALM and fixed cell PALM. Can be multiplexed with PA Janelia Fluor® 549, SE (Cat. No. 6149) to perform two-colour sptPALM in live cells with activation at 405nm. Cell permeable. Excitation maximum = 649 - 651 nm; emission maximum = 663 - 665 nm. Upon protein conjugation the efficiencies of photoconversion improve substantially. Low background staining.

HaloTag is a trademark of Promega Corporation, and SNAP-tag is a trademark of New England BioLabs, Inc.
