Live-cell imaging allows the in vivo analysis of subcellular localisation dynamics of physiological processes with high spatial-temporal resolution. However, only few fluorescent dyes have been custom-designed to facilitate species-specific live-cell imaging approaches in filamentous fungi to date. Therefore, we developed

The role of multidrug resistance protein 1 (MRP1) in the maintenance of transbilayer lipid asymmetry in the erythrocyte membrane was investigated. The transbilayer distribution of endogenous phospholipids and [(7-nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazol-4-yl)amino]hexanoyl (NBD)-labelled lipid analogues was compared in the absence and the presence

In order to study the endocytosis of membrane lipids during the development of neuronal polarity, we examined the internalization of a short acyl chain fluorescent derivative of ganglioside GM1, N-(6-(4-nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazole-7-yl)-aminohexanoyl)-GM1 (C6-NBD-GM1), in hippocampal neurons cultured at low density. C6-NBD-GM1 was

It is proposed that increased phospholipid unsaturation in membranes and perturbation by agents such as ethanol weaken interlipid hydrogen bonding involving water and that the process is independent of effects on lipid order. To investigate this, the rates of phospholipid

The synthesis, identification and characterization of neutral lipid analogs containing N-(7-nitro-2,1,3-benzoxadiazoi-4-yl)-aminocaproic acid are reported. The acyl-imidazole derivative of the fluorescent fatty acid was used to esterify L-alpha-glycerophosphorylcholine. Fluorescent phosphatidylcholines were converted to the corresponding diacylglycerols by phospholipase C digestion. Triacylglycerols
