PA Janelia Fluor® 646, SE
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 ActivityPhotoactivatable fluorescent dye; supplied as an NHS ester for coupling to primary amine groups. Non-fluorescent until activated at 365 nm. NHS ester can be converted to relevant substrate for use in self-labeling tag systems, e.g. HaloTag® and SNAP-tag®. 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.

This product was used to label recombinant proteins and image them with single molecule sensitivity. The degree of labeling achieved was 1.4 (average). The photoactivation efficiency of the dye is excellent and can be used to track a few molecules at a time, for long periods. The dye is highly photostable and can be used to track proteins for ~10-15 seconds under ideal tracking conditions. I attach here an image before and after photoactivation of the dye. Upon photoactivation, single dye molecules conjugated to the protein are visible.
