Synthesis and Application of Two-Photon Active Fluorescent Rhodol Dyes for Antibody Conjugation and In Vitro Cell Imaging

Címlapos tartalom

A novel family of julolidine-containing fluorescent rhodols equipped with a wide variety of substituents was synthesized in a versatile two-step process. The prepared compounds were fully characterized and exhibited excellent fluorescence properties for microscopy imaging. The best candidate was conjugated to the therapeutic antibody trastuzumab through a copper-free strain-promoted azide-alkyne click reaction. The rhodol-labeled antibody was successfully applied for in vitro confocal and two-photon microscopy imaging of Her2+ cells.
