Hydroxystilbamidine exhibits distinctively different fluorescence emission profiles when bound to DNA compared to RNA. This cationic dye is also frequently used as a retrograde neuronal tracer. Please note that the product offered prior to July 2001 under catalog number H-7599 was actually aminostilbamidine and not hydroxystilbamidine. Aminostilbamidine is now offered under a new catalog number, A-22850.
