General description

5-Carboxyfluorescein, also known as 5-FAM, is a green fluorescent product. It is derived from cleavage of 5-Carboxyfluorescein diacetate by intracellular esterases. In viable cells, the fluorescent molecule is impermeable to the cellular membrane.

Application

5-Carboxyfluorescein has been used as a payload to study leakage phenomena on sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) and coconut (Cocos nucifera L.) liposomes.

Packaging

Bottomless glass bottle. Contents are inside inserted fused cone.

Other Notes

Derivative of fluorescein giving stable derivative upon conjugation with biopolymers

CD3ac, an uncharged and strongly hydrophobic 10 amino acid peptide (Ac-LK(Ac)-LK(Ac)-LK(Ac)-LW-DL-LW-DL-LW-DL-LW-NH2) was synthesized and purified. The peptide readily dissolves in ethanol and--upon solvent exchange to water--assembles into solid spherical particles with diameters of around 500 nm and low size-polydispersity. CD3ac...
