Description (简体中文)
Acridine orange has been used as a fluorescent stain for nucleic acids in agarose and polyacrylamide gels. Acridine orange at a concentration of 120 μM will detect purified DNA in gels with a sensitivity of 25-50 ng per band. It has also been used extensively for cell staining of DNA in apoptosis studies.
Acridine Orange, a cell-permeable metachromatic fluorescent cationic dye that intercalates DNA and RNA, is used in fluorescence and epiflouresence microscopy. Acridine Orange dye has been used to analyze mitochondria and lysosomal content by flow cytometry, characterize multidrug resistance, and measure changes in mitochondrial mass during apoptosis in rat thymocytes.
