Can CF Dyes be used to label lipopolysaccharide (LPS) for in vivo studies?

Ask a question

We do not have firsthand experience with LPS labeling, but according to the literature,  LPS has been labeled using amine-reactive dyes, like FITC. Alexa Fluor® dyes have been used instead of FITC for this application, so our amine-reactive CF® Dye Succinimidyl Esters should also work for this. There is a publication for enzymatic labeling of LPS using dye hydrazides. Our CF® Dye hydrazides could be used in this method. The paper also describes the traditional amine labeling method and purification of the conjugate.
