We have developed several classes of new squaraine-based red and near-infrared (NIR) probes and labels (SETA and Square series), naphthalimide-based fluorescence lifetime dyes (SeTau series), and cyanine- and squaraine-based quenchers (SQ series). This report discusses the spectral and photophysical properties of these new markers. In particular, the red and NIR dyes of the SETA and Square series are extremely bright, with photostabilities that are unmatched by any other dyes in the same spectral region. Key words: biomedical probes and labels; quenchers; lifetime labels; pH-sensitive dyes; biological imaging Introduction Fluorescent but also nonfluorescent dyes (quenchers) are used for a wide range of biomedical applications. Whereas fluorescent labels are used for covalent attach- ment to biological species, fluorescent probes undergo noncovalent interactions with a biomolecule or the an- alyte of interest. Despite the many commercially avail- able fluorescent dyes, they still suffer from shortcom- ings, such as low fluorescence quantum yields (QYs) in aqueous media and insufficient photostability. Also, there is a need for not only brightly fluorescent dyes but also truly dark quenchers for energy transfer measure- ments that exhibit no residual fluorescence. In particu- lar, in the red and near-infrared (NIR) region, the lack of bright, photostable markers for imaging applications is still pronounced. Recently we reported the synthesis, spectral prop- erties, and biomedical applications of squaraines and ring-substituted squaraines (Square and SETA dyes). 1 6 Here we describe new probes and labels and compare them with other commercially avail- able markers. Meanwhile we introduce the new SeTau Address for correspondence: Leonid Patsenker, State Scientific Insti- tution “Institute for Single Crystals” of the NAS of Ukraine, 60 Lenin Ave., 61001 Kharkov, Ukraine.

These are a series of extremely bright and photostable fluorescence dyes and dark quenchers for use in bio- logical and pharmaceutical research, clinical diagnos- tics, and high-throughput screening. These materials include reactive red and NIR fluorescent labels of the Square and SETA series for covalent attachment to biomolecules, such as proteins, amino acids, peptides, oligonucleotides, DNA, RNA, lipids, and drugs;

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
