I have used this technique (LDS-751) on MOLT-4 + etoposide, HL-60 +
camptothecin, U937 + CH11 (anti-fas), aged granulocytes, Raji cells in low serum
for 3 days. One of my associates has used it on T cell lines induced with anti-
fas or anti-TCR (or CD3). Worked in all cases. Fluorescein diacetate a la
Ormerod also is very reliable.
Exciton is at 513-252-2989 or 513-258-3937 (FAX) according to my latest catalog.
I believe that Molecular Probes now also sells LDS-751. There is apparently
some controversy about Styryl 8 versus LDS-751 and the appropriate structure. I
have only used the Exciton material.
This is a personal communciation and not an official communication of BDIS.
