Sulforhodamine B

Similar to other sulforhodamine dyes, the highly water-soluble sulforhodamine B can also be used as a polar tracer for the studies of cell morphology and neuronal cell-cell communication (1-3). In addition, sulforhodamine B has been shown to be a superior protein stain for use in the quantification of cellular proteins of cultured cells.

Product Description

Similar to other sulforhodamine dyes, the highly water-soluble sulforhodamine B can also be used as a polar tracer for the studies of cell morphology and neuronal cell-cell communication (1-3). In addition, sulforhodamine B has been shown to be a superior protein stain for use in the quantification of cellular proteins of cultured cells. The intensely colored, water soluble dye is particularly useful for in vitro cell-based screening of anticancer drugs (5,6). The dye is believed to bind to basic amino acids of cellular proteins. Thus, colorimetric measurement of the bound dye provides an estimate of the total protein mass that is related to the cell number. The assay method is simple and reproducible, and the end-point measurement is not time-critical, a significant advantage over assays using tetrazolium derivatives. The method is especially applicable to large scale screening of anticancer drug candidates from natural extracts or synthetic chemicals.

    Sulforhodamine 101

    Sulforhodamine 101 has a longer absorption wavelength than does sulforhodamine B. Like sulforhodamine B and G, in addition to their potential use in cancer drug screening, these fluorescent dyes have been primarily used as polar tracers for the studies of neuronal cell morphology and cell-cell communication.

    Sulforhodamine G

    Similar to other sulforhodamine dyes, the highly water-soluble sulforhodamine G can also be used as a polar tracer for the studies of cell morphology and neuronal cell-cell communication (1-3).
