BHK cells incubated with fluorescent fatty acid analog.
BHK cells incubated in medium containing the fluorescent fatty acid analog BODIPY 500/510 C1,C12 (Cat. No. D3823). This photomicrograph, obtained through a standard fluorescein longpass filter set, reveals reticular green-fluorescent staining as well as yellow-orange–fluorescent spherical structures. These fluorescent structures are indicative of the metabolic accumulation of BODIPY dye–labeled neutral lipids in cytoplasmic droplets.
