Dansylcadaverine | Autophagic vacuole dye

Dansylcadaverine (10121-91-2) preferentially accumulates in autophagic vacuoles due to a combination of ion trapping and specific interactions with membrane lipids making it a very useful probe for monitoring autophagy.1,2 Inhibits EGF internalization.3 Dansylcadaverine competes with certain trans-aminases and can be used with antibody/affinity procedures to isolate resulting conjugates.4 Abs: 335 nm, Em: 510 nm
