Application

Fluo-3 and related molecule Fluo3/AM are used as a fluorescence indicator of intracellular calcium (Ca2+). Fluo-3 may be use for flow cytometry and confocal laser scanning microscopy using visible light excitation (compatible with argon laser sources operating at 488 nm). Fluorescence intensity increases about 40-fold after calcium binding.

Other Notes

Fluorescent indicator for calcium used in flow cytometry. Fluorescence intensity increases about 40-fold after calcium binding

Type 2 diabetes, which features β-cell failure, is caused by the decrease of β-cell mass and insulin secretory function. Current treatments fail to halt the decrease of functional β-cell mass. Strategies to prevent β-cell apoptosis and dysfunction are highly desirable.
