Product nameNuclear Green DCS1
Tested applicationsSuitable for: ICC/IF, Flow Cytmore details
Nuclear Green DCS1 is a fluorogenic, DNA-selective and cell impermeant green fluorescent dye for analyzing DNA content in dead cells. The Nuclear Green DCS1 has its fluorescence significantly enhanced upon binding to double-stranded DNA. It can be used in fluorescence imaging, microplate and flow cytometry applications. This DNA-binding dye might be used for multicolor analysis of dead cells.

ICC/IF image of ab7291 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed and then incubated in 1% BSA / 10% normal donkey serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilize the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab7291, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (red) was ab150115 Alexa Fluor® 647 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) used at 2µg/ml for 1h. Nuclear Green DCS1 (ab138905) was used to stain the cell nuclei (green) at a 1/1500 dilution with a 60 minute incubation.
