General description

DiI is a Dye Aye, a chemical with CAS number 41085-99-8. It is a fluorescent lipophilic cationic indocarbocyanine dye, which is usually made as a perchlorate salt. Mostly used for scientific staining purposes, such as single molecule imaging, fate mapping and neuronal tracing (as DiI is retained in the lipid bilayers).

Application

1,1′-Dioctadecyl-3,3,3′,3′-tetramethylindocarbocyanine perchlorate is used for the following applications:
  • Preparation of Dil solution
  • fluorescent membrane dye
  • Di-I Staining

Biochem/physiol Actions

Lipophilic carbocyanine dye used primarily for optical recordings of membrane voltage and for studies of membrane fluidity. Retrograde stain for neurons; provides intense, long-lasting staining of live neurons in vivo and in vitro.

Other Notes

Lipophilic fluorescent probe for studying membranes

Previous studies have shown that sodium salicylate (SS) activates not only central auditory structures, but also nonauditory regions associated with emotion and memory. To identify electrophysiological changes in the nonauditory regions, we recorded sound-evoked local field potentials and multiunit discharges
