* FAM = carboxyfluorescein; CR 6G = carboxyrhodamine 6G; JOE = 6-carboxy-4',5'-dichloro-2',7'-dimethoxyfluorescein; TAMRA = carboxytetramethylrhodamine; ROX = carboxy-X-rhodamine; BODIPY = a substituted 4,4-difluoro-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene derivative; SE = succinimidyl ester; SSE = water-soluble sulfosuccinimidyl ester. † These are the most widely used isomers for DNA sequencing.ref ‡ These BODIPY derivatives were reported to be useful for automated DNA sequencing, in part because the dyes have a minimal effect on the mobility of the fragment during electrophoresis and also exhibit well-resolved spectra with narrow bandwidths.ref § Excitation (Ex) and emission (Em) maxima in nm.
