    MB™ 543 Picolyl Azide is an advanced fluorescent probe that incorporates a copper-chelating motif to raise the effective concentration of Cu(I) at the reaction site to boost the efficiency of the CuAAC reaction, resulting in a faster and more biocompatible CuAAC labeling. Up to 40-fold increase of signal intensity, compared to conventional azides, was reported (see Selected References).

    MB™ 543 Picolyl Azide is an advanced fluorescent probe that incorporates a copper-chelating motif to raise the effective concentration of Cu(I) at the reaction site to boost the efficiency of the CuAAC reaction, resulting in a faster and more biocompatible CuAAC labeling. Up to 40-fold increase of signal intensity, compared to conventional azides, was reported (see Selected References).

    In addition, the use picolyl azides instead of conventional azides allows for at least a tenfold reduction in the concentration of the copper catalyst without sacrificing the efficiency of labeling, significantly improving biocompatibility of CuAAC labeling protocol.

    In summary, the introduction of a copper-chelating motif into azide probe leads to a substantial increase in the sensitivity and reduced cell toxicity of CuAAC detection alkyne-tagged biomolecules. This will be of special value for the detection of low abundance targets or living system imaging.

    MB™ 543 Azide is an orange colored fluorescent probe with absorption and emission maxima at 544 and 560 nm, respectively. The dye is based on a novel class of rhodamine dyes. Unlike traditional rhodamine dyes, MB™ 543 is not only bright and photostable but also highly water-soluble and pH-insensitive. MB™ 543 fluorescent dyes can be used in place of TAMRA, Alexa Fluor 546®, DyLight 546®, CF™543 and spectrally similar dyes.
