This product is lectin PNA labeled with our superior deep red fluorescent dye CF™594. Lectin PNA is specific for terminal β-galactose and binds preferentially to a commonly occurring structure, galactosyl (β-1,3) N-acetylgalactosamine. CF™594 (Ex/Em = 593/614 nm) is spectrally similar to Alexa Fluor® 594 and Texas Red® dye but yields much brighter protein conjugates due to its high quantum yield and exceptional water solubility. CF™594 also has excellent photostability ideal for demanding applications, such as confocal microscopy and single molecule imaging. The dye is particularly useful to combine with our blue fluorescent CF™350, green fluorescent CF™488A and far red CF™633 or CF™647 for multi-color imaging.
