NBD-Ethylenediamine

The fluorescence of NBD is highly dependent on the environment; it is virtually nonfluorescent in water but becomes strongly green fluorescent in hydrophobic media. NBD-ethylenediamine can be readily coupled to activated carboxy groups or sulfonyl chlorides.

    NBD-PE

    NBD-PE (N-(7-Nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazol-4-yl)-1,2-dihexadecanoyl-snglycero-3-phosphoethanolamine, triethylammonium salt) in combination with Rhodamine-DHPE (#60026) or Texas Red®-DHPE (#60027) has been used to study membrane fusion via fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) (1-3). NBD-PE has also been used in photobleaching recovery measurement.

    NBD C6-Sphingomyelin

    NBD C6-sphingomyelin (6-((N-(7-nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazol-4-yl)amino)hexanoyl)sphingosyl phosphocholine) has been used for following sphingolipid metabolism in cells.

    NBD C6-Ceramide

    NBD C6-ceramide (6-((N-(7-nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazol-4-yl)amino)hexanoyl)sphingosine) has been used for following sphingolipid metabolism in cells, and as a selective stain for the Golgi apparatus in live and fixed cells.

    NBD Chloride

    NBD chloride (4-Chloro-7-nitrobenzo-2-oxa-1,3-diazole) is nonfluorescent until it reacts with primary or secondary amines to produce a fluorescent product. NBD chloride has been extensively used as a derivatizing reagent for chromatography analysis of amino acids and low molecular weight amines.

    EDC (EDAC)

    EDC (or EDAC) (1-(3-Dimethylaminopropyl-3-ethylcarbodiimide, hydrochloride)) has recently been found to be very useful for fixing in situ chelators, including the fluorescent ion indicators for histological studies following physiological experiments. EDC is also a widely used reagent to activate carboxy groups for amine coupling.

    DMSO, Anhydrous

    Anhydrous DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide; methyl sulfoxide) is recommended for preparing stock solutions of AM ester dyes, reactive dyes and other related moisture-sensitive products.
