AZDye 488 Tetrazine
A bright, green-fluorescent probe used for detection TCO-tagged biopolymers. AZDye 488 Tetrazine demonstrates exceptionally fast cycloaddition kinetics (up to 30 000 M-1 s-1) with trans-cyclooctenes (TCO) as the dienophile, the fastest kinetics ever reported for any bioorthogonal reaction. In applications such as in vivo cancer imaging or pre‐targeted cell labeling studies where rapid reaction kinetics is a must AZDye 488 Tetrazine probe would of great value.
