Fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) is largely used in immunofluorescence methods. We propose to analyse the quality of some recent fluorochromes using image analysis. Fluorochromes tested include FITC and dichlorotriazinylaminofluorescein (DTAF), dipyrrometheneboron difluoride (BODIPY), Rhodol Green and cyanine 2. RAMOS cells were...

A series of chemically reactive, fluorescent rhodol derivatives was prepared and evaluated. Reactive functional groups included activated esters, amines, haloacetamides, fixable hydrazide derivatives, acrylamides, and photoaffinity reagents. Depending on the choice of substituents, absorption maxima of the dyes varied from...

A highly efficient and concise synthetic scheme for rhodol fluorophores is developed with palladium-catalyzed amination reaction as the key step. This new synthetic route is utilized to construct a rhodol library, potentially useful for the design of novel fluorescent probes.

Fluorophores are potentially useful for in vivo cancer diagnosis. Using relatively inexpensive and portable equipment, optical imaging with fluorophores permits real-time detection of cancer. However, fluorophores can be toxic and must be investigated before they can be administered safely to...
