Application

5(6)-Carboxyfluorescein, fluorescent polyanionic probe, and its derivatives such as 2′,7′-bis (2-carboxyethyl)-5(6)-carboxyfluorescein are used to measure changes in intracellular pH (pHi) and processes such as dendrimer aggregation and absorption.

We evaluated four different fluoroprobes to determine their capabilities and limitations in measuring intracellular pH by the fluorescent indicator technique. In vitro, carboxyfluorescein, dimethylcarboxyfluorescein, biscarboxyethyl carboxyfluorescein, and 4-methylumbelliferone (4MU) all showed comparably intense fluorescence and excellent pH sensitivity near their...

Fluorescein and carboxyfluorescein have found recent application as probes of intracellular pH. The present study examines several parameters required for interpretation of the spectral information derived from fluorescein and carboxyfluorescein generated intracellularly from their permeant diacetate derivatives. Coefficients were determined...

Adhesion of Staphylococcus aureus to blood vessels under shear stress requires von Willebrand factor (VWF). Several bacterial factors have been proposed to interact with VWF, including VWF-binding protein (vWbp), a secreted coagulase that activates the host's prothrombin to generate fibrin....

Although fibrous collagens are major structural components of extracellular matrix in mammals, collagen overproduction is associated with many human diseases including cancers and fibrosis. Collagen is typically identified in biomedical research by Western blot and immunohistochemistry; however, anticollagen antibodies employed...

Severe falciparum malaria anaemia (SMA) is a frequent cause of mortality in children and pregnant women. The most important determinant of SMA appears to be the loss of non-parasitized red blood cells (np-RBCs) in excess of loss of parasitized (p-)...
