Long wavelength red fluorescent dyes from 3,5-diiodo-BODIPYs
Amphiphilic and long wavelength red fluorescent dyes (4 and 7) were prepared from the Sonogashira coupling reactions of 3,5-diiodo-BODIPYs (1 and 6). One of these compounds, BODIPY 7, readily accumulated within human carcinoma HEp2 cells and was found to localize mainly within the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2010.
