Product information "RatioWorks(TM) PDMPO"
The existing pH probes are ill-adapted to study acidic organelles such as lysosomes, endosomes, spermatozoa and acrosomes because their fluorescence is significantly reduced at lower pH. In addition, most of the existing pH probes (such as BCECF and SNARF) are not selectively localized in acidic organelles. The growing potential of ratio imaging is significantly limited by the lack of appropriate fluorescent probes for acidic organelles although ratio imaging has received intensive attention in the past few decades. PDMPO [2-(4-pyridyl)-5-((4-(2-dimethylaminoethylaminocarbamoyl)methoxy)phenyl)oxazole] is characterized as acidotropic dual-excitation and dual-emission pH probe. It emits intense yellow fluorescence at lower pH and gives intense blue fluorescence at higher pH. This unique pH-dependent fluorescence makes PDMPO an ideal pH probe for acidic organelles with pKa = 4.47. PDMPO selectively labels acidic organelles (such as lysosomes) of live cells and the two distinct emission peaks can be used to monitor the pH fluctuations of live cells in ratio measurements. Additionally, the very large Stokes shift and excellent photostability of PDMPO make PDMPO an excellent fluorescent acidotropic reagent for fluorescence imaing. The unique fluorescence properties of PDMPO might give researchers a new tool with which to study acidic organelles of live cells. PDMPO can be well excited by the violet laser at 405 nm for flow cytometric applications.
