fluorescent dye

Definitions

  • WordNet 3.6
    • n fluorescent dye a yellow dye that is visible even when highly diluted; used as an absorption indicator when silver nitrate solution is added to sodium chloride in order to precipitate silver chloride (turns pink when no chloride ions are left in solution and negative fluorescein ions are then absorbed)

In science:

Typically a stable fluorescent dyes is covalently attached to the target. This methodology brings forward a number of limitations, in particular, in case of protein labeling. First of all the fluorescent probes need to be attached selectively and sitespecifically to prevent unspecific background.
