Description

A widely used red fluorescent dye for following synaptic activity by staining synaptic vesicles at the synapse or neuromuscular junctions. When used in combination with the green fluorescent dye SynaptoGreen™ (70020), synapses or neuromuscular junctions can be imaged independently in two colors. SynaptoRed™ has also been used to study endocytosis in Dictyostelia.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A widely used red fluorescent dye for following synaptic activity by staining synaptic vesicles at the synapse or neuromuscular junctions. When used in combination with the green fluorescent dye SynaptoGreen™ (70020), synapses or neuromuscular junctions can be imaged independently in two colors. SynaptoRed™ has also been used to study endocytosis in Dictyostelia. Please also see AM4-64 (70025), which is similar to SynaptoRed™, but with a formaldehyde-fixable amine group.

SynaptoRed™ can also be used to stain bacteria (gram-positive or gram-negative) and yeast, although in yeast it rapidly internalizes to vacuolar membranes. See our Cellular Stains Table for more information on how our dyes stain various organisms.
