  • Compatible with common live-cell nuclear counterstains (Hoechst 33342, Draq5™, Vybrant® DyeCycle™ Ruby, NUCLEAR-ID® Red dyes)
  • High resistance to photobleaching and concentration quenching, ensuring strong, consistent fluorescence signal, even after extended viewing periods
  • Validated for utility in live cell imaging applications, demonstrating appropriate response to treatment with well-characterized organelle-perturbation agents
  • Stringently manufactured, to control and eliminate non-specific assay artifacts
Enzo  Life Sciences’ NUCLEOLAR-ID® Green Detection Kit contains a proprietary dye suitable for live-cell staining of nucleoli. The dye allows examination of nucleolar dynamic changes in intracellular distribution, trafficking and localization arising from biological processes such as the cell cycle and ribosome biogenesis. The kit is compatible with most fluorescence detection systems, including conventional and confocal fluorescence microscopes, as well as High Content Screening (HCS) platforms. This kit is specifically designed for visualizing nucleoli in living cells. The dye in the kit is resistant to photobleaching, facilitating its use in imaging applications. This nucleolar dye may be used in conjunction with common live-cell nuclear counterstains such as Hoechst 33342, Draq5™, Vybrant® DyeCycle™ Ruby and Enzo’s NUCLEAR-ID® Red dye. A control nucleolus perturbation agent, actinomycin D, is provided for monitoring changes in nucleolar dynamics. Potential applications for this kit include monitoring impaired ribosome biogenesis, inhibition of transcription, cell cycle dynamics and cellular stress, as well as the distribution, trafficking and dynamics of nucleolar proteins, the distribution of viral proteins, and potentially as an aid in identifying cancer cells.

Figure 3: Cells stained with NUCLEOLAR-ID® Green Detection Reagent show maximal fluorescence signal within the nucleoli and faint fluorescence throughout the nucleus and cytoplasm, as shown in panel A. When the cells are treated with low doses of actinomycin D, loss of nucleolar staining is observed, as shown in panel B. Counterstaining with NUCLEAR-ID® Red Detection Reagent facilitates highlighting the nucleoli relative to the weak cytoplasmic staining.

Figure 2: NUCLEOLAR-ID® Green dye stained live U2OS cells counterstained with NUCLEAR-ID® Red (A), Draq5™ (B), Vybrant® DyeCycle™ Ruby (C), and Hoechst 33342 (D). Nucleoli appear as green structures contrasted against the selected nuclear counterstain by fluorescence microscopy. As an RNA stain, the NUCLEOLAR-ID® Green dye displays some cytoplasmic staining as well, but the nuclear counterstain facilitates unambiguous identification of the nucleoli as green fluorescence signal within the confines of the highlighted nuclear fluorescence signal.
