Thermo Scientific DyLight 755 Sulfhydryl-Reactive Dye is a maleimide-activated derivative of high-performance DyLight 755 used to fluorescently label sulfhydryl-containing peptides, proteins and other biomolecular probes.
DyLight 755 is a near-IR fluor that is invisible to the naked eye but increases the staining options when using infrared imaging systems. DyLight 755 has spectral properties that are very similar to other near-IR dyes, including Alexa Fluor* 750. The high water solubility of DyLight Fluors means that a high dye-to-protein ratio can be attained without causing precipitation of the conjugates.
- High performance – DyLight 755 replaces Alexa Fluor 755 for near-infrared staining
- Specific – maleimide-activated dye labels proteins and other molecules at reduced sulfhydryls (-SH)
- Efficient labeling methods – well-characterized chemistry and optimized protocols provide for reliable, high-quality labeling
- Optimized antibody labeling procedure –complete protocol for IgG reduction and labeling and calculating the labeling efficiency
- Antibody labeling for immunofluorescence applications, including immunocytochemistry (ICC), immunohistochemistry (IHC), Western blotting and ELISA assay
- Target macromolecule labeling for in vitro and in vivo fluorescent detection strategies
Infrared Western blot detection of ERK1 using Thermo Scientific DyLight 755-conjugated secondary antibody. Serial dilutions of A562 cell lysates were analyzed by Western blotting for levels of ERK1 using a mouse anti-ERK1 primary antibody and a goat anti-mouse secondary antibody conjugated to DyLight 755 (using the DyLight 755 Microscale Antibody Labeling Kit).

DyLight 755 Sulfhydryl-Reactive Dye is activated with a maleic acid imide (maleimide) moiety to form a reactive alkylation reagent. Labeling occurs through reaction of the maleimide-activated dye with reduced sulfhydryl groups (-SH) to form stable thioether bonds. Maleimides are specific for sulfhydryl groups between pH 6.5-7.5 (Learn more about maleimide chemistry).
