General description

DiI is a Dye Aye, a chemical with CAS number 41085-99-8. It is a fluorescent lipophilic cationic indocarbocyanine dye, which is usually made as a perchlorate salt. Mostly used for scientific staining purposes, such as single molecule imaging, fate mapping and neuronal tracing (as DiI is retained in the lipid bilayers).

Application

1,1′-Dioctadecyl-3,3,3′,3′-tetramethylindocarbocyanine perchlorate is used for the following applications:
  • Preparation of Dil solution
  • fluorescent membrane dye
  • Di-I Staining

Biochem/physiol Actions

Lipophilic carbocyanine dye used primarily for optical recordings of membrane voltage and for studies of membrane fluidity. Retrograde stain for neurons; provides intense, long-lasting staining of live neurons in vivo and in vitro.

Other Notes

Lipophilic fluorescent probe for studying membranes
