BODIPY™ TR Ceramide (Invitrogen™)

BODIPY TR ceramide is a red-fluorescent dye that can be used to stain Golgi apparatus in live cells.

BODIPY™ FL C12-Sphingomyelin (N-(4,4-Difluoro-5,7-Dimethyl-4-Bora-3a,4a-Diaza-s-Indacene-3-Dodecanoyl) Sphingosyl Phosphocholine) (Invitrogen™)

The green-fluorescent sphingomyelin, BODIPY® FL C12-sphingomyelin can be used to study sphingolipid transport and signaling pathway in cells.

BODIPY™ TR Ceramide complexed to BSA (Invitrogen™)

The red-fluorescent BODIPY® TR C5 ceramide complexed to BSA can be used in sphingolipid transport and metabolism mechanisms. Complexing fluorescent lipids with bovine serum albuin (BSA) facilitates cell labeling by eliminating the need for organic solvents to dissolve the lipophilic probe - the BSA-complexed probe can be directly dissolved in water.

Bis-BODIPY™ FL C11-PC) (1,2-Bis-(4,4-Difluoro-5,7-Dimethyl-4-Bora-3a,4a-Diaza-s-Indacene-3-Undecanoyl)-sn-Glycero-3-Phosphocholine) (Invitrogen™)

Molecular Probes® phospholipase substrates are dye labeled phospholipids used to monitor phospholipase A (PLA) activity in purified enzyme preparations, cell lysates, and living cells. Two structural variations of these substrates are available, which confer specificity for PLA1 and PLA2. Fluorescently labeled versions of the cleavage product generated from these substrates are also available for use as standards for evaluating percentage substrate conversion in enzymatic reactions.

Fluorogenic Phospholipase A Substrates Specifications:
• Label (Ex/Em): Bis-BODIPY® FL C11-PC (~488/530 nm)
• Specificity: PLA1 or PLA2
• Cleavage product: D3862
• Lyophilized product can be dissolved in ethanol for use
• Fluorescence is measured either in microplate assays or using flow cytometry

BODIPY™ 505/515 (4,4-Difluoro-1,3,5,7-Tetramethyl-4-Bora-3a,4a-Diaza-s-Indacene) (Invitrogen™)

With its nonpolar structure and long-wavelength absorption and fluorescence, BODIPY® 505/515 can be used as a stain for netural lipds and as a tracer for oil and other nonpolar lipids.

BODIPY™ FL C5-Ceramide (N-(4,4-Difluoro-5,7-Dimethyl-4-Bora-3a,4a-Diaza-s-Indacene-3-Pentanoyl)Sphingosine) (Invitrogen™)

BODIPY® FL C5 ceramide can be used in sphingolipid transport and metabolism studies.

BODIPY™ FL C5-Ganglioside GM1 complexed to BSA (Invitrogen™)

Colocalization of fluorescent cholera toxin B conjugates and the green-fluorescent BODIPY® FL C5-ganglioside GM1 complexed to BSA observed by fluorescence microscopy provides a direct indication of the association of these molecules in lipid rafts. Complexing fluorescent lipids with bovine serum albuin (BSA) facilitates cell labeling by eliminating the need for organic solvents to dissolve the lipophilic probe - the BSA-complexed probe can be directly dissolved in water.

BODIPY™ FL C5 (4,4-Difluoro-5,7-Dimethyl-4-Bora-3a,4a-Diaza-s-Indacene-3-Pentanoic Acid) (Invitrogen™)

The green fluorescent fatty acid, BODIPY® FL C5 can be used as a synthetic precursor to a wide variety of fluorescent phospholipids. Unlike fluorophores like pyrene, DPH and NBD, BODIPY® dyes are relatively environment insensitive and is fluorescent in both aqueous and lipid environments.

BODIPY™ 493/503 (4,4-Difluoro-1,3,5,7,8-Pentamethyl-4-Bora-3a,4a-Diaza-s-Indacene) (Invitrogen™)

With its nonpolar structure and long-wavelength absorption and fluorescence, BODIPY® 493/503 can be used as a stain for neutral lipds and as a tracer for oil and other nonpolar lipids.

Marina Blue™ 1,2-Dihexadecanoyl-sn-Glycero-3-Phosphoethanolamine (Marina Blue™ DHPE) (Invitrogen™)

The phospholipid, Marina Blue® DHPE is labeled on the head group with the blue-fluorescent Marina Blue® fluorophore with excitation/emission maxima ~365/460 nm.

BODIPY™ FL C5-Sphingomyelin (N-(4,4-Difluoro-5,7-Dimethyl-4-Bora-3a,4a-Diaza-s-Indacene-3-Pentanoyl)Sphingosyl Phosphocholine) (Invitrogen™)

BODIPY® FL C5 sphingomyelin can be used in sphingolipid transport and metabolism studies.

BODIPY™ FL C5-Lactosylceramide complexed to BSA (Invitrogen™)

The green-fluorescent BODIPY® FL C5 lactosylceramide complexed to BSA can be used in sphingolipid transport and metabolism mechanisms. Complexing fluorescent lipids with bovine serum albuin (BSA) facilitates cell labeling by eliminating the need for organic solvents to dissolve the lipophilic probe - the BSA-complexed probe can be directly dissolved in water.

BODIPY™ 558/568 C12 (4,4-Difluoro-5-(2-Thienyl)-4-Bora-3a,4a-Diaza-s-Indacene-3-Dodecanoic Acid) (Invitrogen™)

The orange-red fluorescent fatty acid, BODIPY® 558/568 C12 can be used as a synthetic precursor to a wide variety of fluorescent phospholipids. Unlike fluorophores like pyrene, DPH and NBD, BODIPY® dyes are relatively environment insensitive and is fluorescent in both aqueous and lipid environments.

Oregon Green™ 488 1,2-Dihexadecanoyl-sn-Glycero-3-Phosphoethanolamine (Oregon Green™ 488 DHPE) (Invitrogen™)

The phospholipid, Oregon Green® 488 DHPE is labeled on the head group with the green-fluorescent Oregon Green® fluorophore with excitation/emission maxima ~501/526 nm. This fluorinated analog of fluorescein overcomes some of the key limitations of fluorescein, including greater photostability and a lower pKa (pKa ~4.7 versus 6.4 for fluorescein), making its fluorescence essentially pH insensitive in the physiological pH range.

NBD Cholesterol (22-(N-(7-Nitrobenz-2-Oxa-1,3-Diazol-4-yl)Amino)-23,24-Bisnor-5-Cholen-3β-Ol) (Invitrogen™)

This fluorescent analog, NBD cholesterol, is an environment-sensitive probe that localizes in the membrane's interior and is useful for investigating lipid transport processes as well lipid-protein interactions.
