Paper Abstract

The possibility and potential benefits of using an extreme red fluorescent dye such as Cy5.5TM to label drug discovery target proteins was studied experimentally. Cy5.5 labeled BSA, GFP, and CRP were used as examples of protein-dye conjugates whose binding to corresponding antibody was detected by changes in either rotational or transnational diffusion properties, that is, by either fluorescence polarization or confocal fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS). In addition, FCS was used to quantitate excitation of Cy5.5 to its triplet state. Fluorescence polarization and lifetime were measured as a function of excitation wavelength or glycerol concentration and solvent viscosity.
