Description

This bisbenzimide dye, Hoechst 34580, is related to the important minor-groove binding, dsDNA-selective dyes Hoechst 33258 and Hoechst 33342. Hoechst 34580 has somewhat longer-wavelength spectra than the other Hoechst dyes when bound to nucleic acids [Howard Shapiro, personal communication].
