Non-sulfonated cyanines are available for the labeling of many targets including:
|• Soluble proteins, which are tolerant to addition of organic co-solvent||• Fluorescence polarization (FP)|
|• Antibodies (with 5-10% of DMSO/DMF)||• Fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET)|
|• DNA and oligonucleotides||• Time-resolved fluorescence energy transfer (TR-FRET)|
|• Peptides||• Fluorescence intensity (FI)|
|• Many small molecules|
|• Reactions in organic media (dichloromethane, acetonitrile)|
Cy3 carboxylic acid is a non-activated fluorescence dye. Most derivatives of non-sulfonated cyanines have low aqueous solubility except for hydrochlorides of hydrazides and amines. This Non-sulfonated reagent has limited aqueous solubility, but with good solubility in organic solvents. For biomolecule labeling, the labeling reagent has low aqueous solubility, using of organic co-solvent to dissolve this molecular is necessary for efficient reaction. First, Cyanine dye should be dissolved in organic solvent and then added to a solution of biomolecule in appropriate aqueous buffer.
In the supramolecular glutamine assay, Cy3 carboxylic acid was conjugated to a single strain DNA and then immobilized onto the glass slide through DNA hybridization. The Cy3 groups serve as FRET donor and the cyclodextrins as supramolecular host .
