Acridine Orange hydrochloride

Catelog Number: A19-0001

Category: DNA Stains


Acridine Orange hydrochloride is the hydrocloride salt of Acridine Orange Stain, which is a cell and organelle membrane-permeable fluorescent dye that binds to nucleic acids and results in an altered spectral emission. It interacts with both DNA and RNA, emits green fluorescence when binds to DNA, and emits red fluorescence when binds to RNA. It is used in cell cycle and apoptosis studies and used as a lysosomal dye. It could distinguish cell death by apoptosis and necroptosis in human oligodendrocytes and mouse models. It is also used to analyze autophagy.
