Product Description

DiBAC4(3) (Bis-(1,3-Dibarbituric acid)-trimethine oxanol) is a so-called translational membrane potential dye that redistributes within the cell membrane when membrane potential changes (1,2). The fluorescence of the dye is enhanced when the dye enters the cell membrane as a result of membrane depolarization. The rate of fluorescence response of the dye to membrane potential change is usually slower than that of the styryl dye di-4-ANEPPS, but the fluorescence signal change for the former is significantly larger than for the latter dye. DiBAC4(3) has applications in high-throughput drug screening.

    Di-4-ANEPPS

    Di-4-ANEPPS is a fast-responding membrane potential dye. Changes in the membrane potential of the cell correlate with changes in the fluorescence excitation intensity of the dye.

    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

    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.

    Di-12-ANEPPQ

    Di-12-ANEPPQ is a fast-responding membrane potential dye. It is more hydrophobic than Di-8-ANEPPQ and is useful for potential-sensitive retrograde labeling of neurons.
