Alkyne-activated fluorescent dyes for chemoselective labeling and detection of azido-tagged molecules, which enables use of fluorescence imaging in metabolic labeling strategies.
Alkyne-activated fluorescent dyes are well suited for detection of metabolically or enzymatically azide-labeled biopolymers. The terminal alkyne group reacts with an azide to produce a stable triazole, also referred to as the Cu(I)‐catalyzed 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.
