DiO-Lipoprotein, low density, acetylated, human plasma, BT-925

Chemical Properties

Light Sensitive


Labels both vascular endothelial cells and macrophages. It can be used to identify and/or isolate these cells from mixed cell populations. When cells are labeled with DiO-Ac-LDL, the lipoprotein is degraded by lysosomal enzymes and the fluorescent probe accumulates in the intracellular membranes. Labeling cells with DiO-Ac-LDL has no effect on cell viability. Pure cultures of vascular endothelial cells can be isolated from complex primary cultures using fluorescent activated cell sorting.DiO-Lipoprotein, low density, acetylated, human plasma is useful for fixed wavelength fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS) Cell sorters.


Store at 4°C. Stable for 3 months.Light sensitive. Store in a cool place. Incompatible with oxidizing agents, light and heat.
