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 ActivityPA Janelia Fluor® 646, SE is a photoactivatable 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.
Please see the protocol for further information on protein/antibody labeling and conjugation.
