NucSpot® 470 is a cell membrane-impermeant green fluorescent DNA stain. It is virtually non-fluorescent in the absence of DNA, but fluoresces bright green upon DNA binding. While other green nucleic acid stains like TOTO®, TO-PRO®, or SYTOX® dyes stain both the nucleus and cytoplasm, NucSpot® 470 specifically stains the nucleus of fixed and permeabilized cells. It also can be used to selectively stain dead cells in living cultures.
NucSpot® 470 is nuclear-specific in dead or permeabilized yeast cells. It is dead cell specific in gram-negative bacteria. In gram-positive strains there may be live cell staining. See our Cellular Stains Table for more information on how our dyes stain various organisms.
NucSpot® 470 has green fluorescence (Ex/Em 460/546 nm) that can be imaged using standard settings for FITC. With excitation at 460 nm, it also is an excellent match for instruments with blue LED excitation sources.
