DAF-FM is a highly sensitive, photo-stable fluorescent probe for the detection of nitric oxide (NO). DAF-2 is the original compound and is widely used, but DAF-FM is more sensitive to nitric oxide (NO) compared with DAF-2. DAF-FM is more photo-stable and less pH sensitive than DAF-2. DAF-FM is not quite as cell-permeable as the diacetate derivative, DAF-FM, but it does not need to be activated by cytosolic enzymes.
Nitric oxide is a reactive free radical gas that can act as an intracellular or extracellular messenger. It may act locally as an autacoid, paracrine substance or neurotransmitter, and at a distant t...
