DAPI染DNA的原理及使用方法 古朵新闻√
发布时间:2019-11-25   点击次数:26次

DAPI 即4',6-二脒基-2-苯基吲哚(4',6-diamidino-2-phenylindole),分子式为C16 H15 N5 ·2C3 H6 O3 ,分子量457.48。


DAPI 是一种能够与DNA强力结合的荧光染料。它结合到双链DNA小沟的AT碱基对处,一个DAPI分子可以占据三个碱基对的位置。结合到双链DNA上DAPI分子的荧光强度提高大约20倍,常用与荧光显微镜观测,根据荧光的强度可以确定DNA的量。另外,因为DAPI可以透过完整的细胞膜,它可以用于活细胞和固定细胞的染色。

在荧光显微镜观察下,DAPI染剂是利用紫外光波长的光线激发。单独DAPI的大吸收波长为340nm,大发射波长为488nm;当DAPI与双链DNA结合时,大吸收波长为364nm,大发射波长为454nm(10 mM Tris pH7.0,100 mM NaCl,10 mM EDTA),其发散光的波长范围含盖了蓝色至青绿色。DAPI也可以和RNA结合,但产生的荧光强度只有与DNA结合的荧光强度的1/5,其发散光的波长范围约在500nm左右。

DAPI的配制及贮存

固体粉末 :避光,2-8 ℃保存,3年没有问题。

贮存液 :用无菌水配制成浓度1 mg/ml 的贮存液,配好后用锡纸包起来,避光,可在-20 ℃下长期保存。(DAPI易溶于水,在PBS中溶解度不高)

使用浓度 :贮存液用1xPBS稀释到终浓度100 ng/ml。

荧光封片液 :0.5 mol/L碳酸盐缓冲液与甘油等体积混合,pH9.5

染色与观察 :制好的玻片上滴加几滴DAPI染液,染色10分钟,流水冲去染液,滤纸吸除多余水分,加一滴荧光封片液,置于荧光显微镜下观察,激发波长360-400nm。

注意事项 :DAPI可能具有致癌性,全部操作过程中必须带塑料或乳胶手套。

推荐厂商 :Invitrogen,Sigma

以下英文介绍摘自Wikipedia 。

DAPI or 4',6-diamidino-2-phenylindole is a fluorescent stain that binds strongly to DNA. It is used extensively in fluorescence microscopy. Since DAPI will pass through an intact cell membrane, it may be used to stain both live and fixed cells.

For fluorescence microscopy, DAPI is excited with ultraviolet light. When bound to double-stranded DNA its absorption maximum is at 358 nm and its emission maximum is at 461 nm. (This emission is fairly broad, and appears blue/cyan.) DAPI will also bind to RNA, though it is not as strongly fluorescent. Its emission shifts to around 500 nm when bound to RNA.

DAPI's blue emission is convenient for microscopists who wish to use multiple fluorescent stains in a single sample. There is fluorescence overlap between DAPI and green-fluorescent molecules like fluorescein and green fluorescent protein (GFP), or red-fluorescent stains like Texas Red, but using spectral unmixing or taking images sequentially can get around this.

Apart from labelling cell nuclei, the most popular application of DAPI is in detection of mycoplasma or virus DNA in cell cultures.

Because DAPI easily enters live cells and binds tightly to DNA, it is toxic and mutagenic. Care should be taken in its handling and disposal.

The Hoechst stains are similar to DAPI in that they are also blue-fluorescent DNA stains which are compatible with both live- and fixed-cell applications
