Dibenzocyclooctyne (DBCO, DBCO, ADIBO) is one of the most reactive cycloalkynes for copper-free click reaction (SPAAC, strain-promoted azide-alkyne cycloaddition). The rate of interaction of DBCO with azides is significantly higher than that of other cyclooctynes, as well as Cu-catalyzed click reaction (CuAAC). Unlike other cyclooctynes, DBCO does not interact with tetrazines, which makes it possible to use it in bioorthogonal reactions together with trans-cyclooctenes and tetrazines.
AF488 is sulfonated rhodamine, a bright, photostable, and hydrophilic fluorophore that emits in the green channel. The absorption maximum is 495 nm. The emission maximum is 519 nm.
AF488 DBCO allows fluorescent labeling of azide-containing biomolecules inside living cells, whole organisms, and inanimate samples.
