  • Synthesis of photoactivatable azido-acyl caged oxazine fluorophores for live-cell imaging CHEMICAL COMMUNICATIONS Anzalone, A. V., Chen, Z., Cornish, V. W. 2016; 52 (60): 9442-9445


    We report the design and synthesis of a photoactivatable azido-acyl oxazine fluorophore. Photoactivation is achieved cleanly and rapidly with UV light, producing a single fluorescent oxazine photoproduct. We demonstrate the utility of azido-acyl caged oxazines for protein specific labeling in living mammalian cells using the TMP-tag technology.
