Rhod-2, AM ester



Product Description

Membrane-permeant form of Rhod-2 that can be loaded into cells via incubation. Because of the relatively low water solubility of the AM ester, Pluronic F-127, a mild detergent, is often used as a dispersing agent to facilitate dye loading. Rhod-2/AM itself does not bind Ca2+, but it is readily hydrolyzed to Rhod-2 by endogenous esterases once it enters cells.

  • Red solid soluble in DMSO
  • Store at -20°C and protect from light, especially in solution
  • C52H59BrN4O19
  • MW: 1132
