Application

Dansylcadaverine (MDC), an autofluorescent dye, is used to monitor autophagy. MDC accumulates in autophagic vacuoles due to a combination of ion trapping and specific interactions with membrane lipids.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Inhibitor of the fibrin-stabilizing fator; Inhibitor of epidermal growth factor (EGF) internalization; Fluorescent substrate for the assay of transamidating enzymes.
The autofluorescent dye dansylcadaverine, or monodansylcadaverine (MDC), is commonly used to monitor autophagy. MDC preferentially accumulates in autophagic vacuoles due to a combination of ion trapping and specific interactions with membrane lipids.

Packaging

Bottomless glass bottle. Contents are inside inserted fused cone.
air sensitive, handled under inert gas

Other Notes

Solubility of dansylcadaverine is tested in methanol (10 mg/mL). It has also been reported that dansylcadaverine is soluble in DMSO and acetic acid.
