Azide-activated fluorescent dyes for chemoselective labeling and detection of alkyne-tagged molecules, which enables use of fluorescence imaging in metabolic labeling strategies.
Azide-activated fluorescent dyes are well suited for detection of metabolically or enzymatically alkyne-labeled biopolymers. The azide group (N3) reacts with terminal alkynes to produce a stable triazole, also referred to as the Cu(I)‐catalyzed free click reaction. This reaction possesses extreme selectivity and biocompatibility, such that the complimentary reagents can form covalent bonds within richly functionalized biological systems, in some cases, living organisms.
