Dyes With an Amine Group

CF® Dye Amines can be used to conjugate CF® dyes to carboxylic acids groups in biological molecules. Carboxylic acids can be activated using water soluble carbodiimides like EDC (EDAC) to react with amine-functionalized dyes to form a stable amide bond.

Dyes or biotin with amine groups like Lucifer Yellow Cadaverine or Neurobiotin™ are also used as fluid phase markers for neuronal tracing, as well as gap junction studies.
