Fluorescent probe for NO detection
ALX-620-052-M001 1 mg 536.00 USD
Do you need bulk/larger quantities?
Highly sensitive fluorescent probe for the real-time detection of nitric oxide (NO) in vivo. In the cell, the product reacts rapidly with NO in the presence of O2 to form the highly fluorescent compound triazolofluorescein (DAF-2T, Ex 495nm; Em 515nm). Not for sale in Japan.

DAF-2 DA (cell permeable) image
Figure: The cell-permeable diacetate derivative, DAF-2 DA (Prod. No. ALX-620-056), is used to load cells. Subsequent hydrolysis by cytosolic esterases releases DAF-2 (Prod. No. ALX-620-052), which is relatively non-fluorescent at physiological pH. However, in the presence of NO and O2, DAF-2 is converted to the fluorescent triazole derivative, DAF-2T (Prod. No. ALX-620-060)."
