Informations supplémentaires
Labeled calcium indicators are molecules that exhibit an increase in fluorescence upon binding Ca2+. Fluo-3 has been used to image the spatial dynamics of Ca2+ signaling, in flow cytometry experiments involving photoactivation of caged chelators, second messengers, and neurotransmitters, and for cell-based pharmacological screening. Fluo-4 is an analog of fluo-3 with the two chlorine substituents replaced by fluorines, which results in increased fluorescence excitation at 488 nm and consequently higher fluorescence signal levels. Cells may be physically loaded with the cell-impermeant salt forms of these indicators using patch pipette, microinjection, or our Influx™ pinocytotic cell-loading reagent. These indicators are useful for fluorescence and confocal microscopy, flow cytometry, and microplate screening applications.

Calcium Indicator (Cell-Impermeant Salts) Specifications:
• Label (Ex/Em of Ca2+–bound form): Fluo-4 (494/516 nm)
• Fluorescence intensity increase upon binding Ca2+: >100 fold
• Kd for Ca2+ in buffer: ∼335 nM
• Exhibit fluorescence increase upon binding Ca2+ with little shift in wavelength

Using TPEN to Control Heavy Metal Cations
In addition, BAPTA-based indicators such as these bind various heavy metal cations (e.g., Mn2+, Zn2+, Pb2+) with substantially higher affinity than Ca2+. Perturbations to calcium measurements caused by presence of these ions can be controlled using the heavy metal-selective chelator TPEN.

More Choices for Fluorescent Calcium Indicators
We offer a large selection of Molecular Probes™ calcium indicators for use in various experimental scenarios. For more information, review Fluorescent Ca2+ Indicators Excited with Visible Light—Section 19.3 in the Molecular Probes™ Handbook.
