Alternate Names for DRAQ5 (TM)
Deep Red Anthraquinone 5 (DRAQ5 (TM)) is a cell-permeable dye belonging to the anthraquinone family that intercalates with high affinity to double stranded DNA (dsDNA). This far-red emitting fluorescent DNA dye is used for cell cycle analysis and nuclear staining. No measurable binding to mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) has been detected and DRAQ5 (TM) shows negligible binding to RNA.
The excitation wavelength maxima of DRAQ5 (TM) are 600 nm / 646 nm but it can also be suboptimally excited by the 488nm (blue laser) for flow cytometry. Its emission wavelength maximum is 697 nm when intercalated with dsDNA. The fluorescence signal is proportional and stoichiometric to the quantity of nuclear DNA present in the cell.
