Di-8-ANEPPS

ANEPPS dyes are fast responding membrane potential dyes. Compared to Di-4-ANEPPS, Di-8-ANEPPS is better retained in the outer leaflet of cell plasma membranes and thus more suitable for long-term membrane potential studies. Di-8-ANEPPS is also more photostable and less phototoxic than Di-4-ANEPPS

Product Description

ANEPPS dyes are fast responding membrane potential dyes (1). Biotium offers both Di-4-ANEPPS and Di-8-ANEPPS. Di-4-ANEPPS has the problem of being rapidly internalized in cells, so it is mainly used for short-term experiments. However, because Di-8-ANEPPS is more lipophilic, the dye is better retained in the outer leaflet of cell plasma membranes and thus more suitable for long-term membrane potential studies. Di-8-ANEPPS is also more photostable and less phototoxic than Di-4-ANEPPS (2,3).

    DiBAC4(3) is a translational membrane potential dye that redistributes within the cell membrane when membrane potential changes.

    Di-2-ANEPEQ

    Di-2-ANEPEQ, also called JPW1114, is a fast-responding membrane potential dye. It is highly water-soluble and is usually introduced into cells by microinjection.

    Di-8-ANEPPQ

    Di-8-ANEPPQ is a fast-responding membrane potential dye. It is more hydrophobic than Di-2-ANEPEQ and is useful for potential-sensitive retrograde labeling of neurons.
