General description

Atto 488 is a superior fluorescent label with high molecular absorption (90.000) and quantum yield (0.80) as well as sufficient stoke′s shift. It is optimized for excitation with argon laser, and is characterized by high photo stability.
The iodoacetamide derivative reacts, like the maleimide, with a sulfhydryl group forming a thioether bond. It is predominantly used for tagging cystein residues of proteins.

Over the last three decades, Cryo-TEM has developed into a powerful technique for high-resolution imaging of biological macromolecules in their native vitrified state. However, the method for vitrifying specimens onto EM grids is essentially unchanged - application of ∼3 μL...

We use single-molecule fluorescence microscopy to monitor individual hybridization reactions between membrane-anchored DNA strands, occurring in nanofluidic lipid monolayer films deposited on Teflon AF substrates. The DNA molecules are labeled with different fluorescent dyes, which make it possible to simultaneously...
