AFDye-488-Alkyne (Alexa Fluor-488-Alkyne equivalent) CAS:1006592-47-7 is a type of fluorescent dye that is commonly used in biochemistry and biotechnology research. It is composed of several functional groups, including an AFDye-488 fluorophore and an alkyne group.
The AFDye-488 fluorophore is a highly fluorescent dye that is commonly used as a fluorescent probe in bioimaging and flow cytometry applications. The alkyne group is a functional group that contains a carbon-carbon triple bond, and is commonly used in chemical reactions that involve click chemistry.
The combination of these functional groups in AFDye-488-Alkyne (Alexa Fluor-488-Alkyne equivalent) is designed to create a highly sensitive and selective probe for the detection and visualization of specific biological molecules and structures. The alkyne group, for example, can be used in conjunction with other chemical reagents to selectively label proteins, nucleic acids, and other biomolecules, while the AFDye-488 fluorophore can be used to detect and visualize these labeled molecules with high sensitivity and specificity.
