General description

SYBR® Green I is an asymmetrical cyanine dye, which is used to detect nucleic acids. It consists of a N-alkylated benzothiazolium or benzoxazolium ring system, that is joined by a monomethine bridge to a pyridinium or quinolinium ring system. SYBR Green I binds to the minor groove of dsDNA and is excited at a wavelength of 480 nm. It has a peak fluorescence emission of 520 nm.

Application

SYBR® Green I nucleic acid gel stain has been used for real-time PCR quantification and flow cytometry.
SYBR® Green I nucleic acid gel stain has been used for:
  • the quantification of dsDNA
  • to stain DNA in polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
  • for comet assay technique
  • to assess spermatozoon membrane integrity

A proprietary unsymmetrical cyanine dye which is an ultrasensitive stain for post-electrophoresis staining of dsDNA in agarose or polyacrylamide gels. SYBR Green I can also be used to detect ssDNA and RNA in denaturing agarose/formaldehyde and polyacrylamide/urea gels without any prewashing steps, although the sensitivity is lower (approximately 100 to 300 pg per band using 254 nm epi-illumination). SYBR Green II is recommended for ss-DNA and RNA.

SYBR Green I stain has been shown to be much less mutagenic than ethidium bromide in Ames tests. SYBR Green I is also a very sensitive stain for oligonucleotides, allowing for detection of as little as 1-2 ng of a synthetic 24-mer on a 5% polyacrylamide gel, which is 50-100 times greater sensitivity than obtained with ethidium bromide. Staining agarose gels with SYBR Green I does not interfere with the transfer of nucleic acids to membranes or subsequent hybridization in Southern or Northern blot analysis as long as 0.1%-0.3% SDS is included in prehybridization and hybridization buffers to remove the dye.

Sigma Life Science is committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has inherently safer chemistry, compared to the standard use of ethidium bromide for staining. For more information see publication found in related content.

  5. Will Product S9430, SYBR® Green I nucleic acid gel stain, stain DNA that contains deaza-G modified nucleotides in place of guanisine?  

    Product S9430, SYBR® Green I nucleic acid gel stain, will poorly stain DNA containing deaza-G modified nucleotides in place of guanisine.  A way around this issue would be to use a mixture of deaza-G modified nucleotides with guanisine.  This will allow for better staining.
