The membrane-permeable acetoxymethyl ester (quin2AM) can be loaded into cells, being de-esterified in the cytoplasm and trapped, and used as an intracellular indicator, although it does sequester calcium and can perturb normal...

...‐2 abbr. for 2‐[(2‐amino‐5‐methylphenoxy)methyl]‐6‐methoxy‐8‐aminoquinoline‐ N , N , N ′, N ′‐tetraacetic acid; a molecule functionally related to the Ca 2+ ‐chelating agent EGTA , but containing fluorescent groups. The quantum yield of fluorescence is greatly enhanced on binding Ca 2+ , leading to its use as a quantitative indicator of Ca 2+ concentration. It is normally used as its tetraacetoxy ester, which readily crosses the plasma membrane and is then hydrolysed within the cell by esterases to Quin2, the polar nature of which causes it to be...

... was very popular on the Elizabethan stage and was revived unaltered after the Restoration, as John Downes reports in his Roscius Anglicanus ( 1708 ). Ravenscroft adapted Titus Andronicus in 1678 and his version enjoyed a successful revival in 1720 , thanks to James Quin ’s virtuoso performance as Aaron. Aaron remained the leading role in the only major 19th-century revival, when the black American actor Ira Aldridge played him in a heavily adapted version of the original, which turns Shakespeare’s villain into a noble and dignified character....

...in unadapted form soon after the Restoration in 1660 . Despite Dennis ’s short-lived adaptation The Comical Gallant ( 1702 ), the original play has remained popular ever since, often starring actors already established as Sir John in Henry IV (from Betterton through Quin to Beerbohm Tree and beyond), though many important performers have also been attracted to the role of Ford (including Kemble and Charles Kean ) , and to those of the wives themselves (including Anne Bracegirdle and Elizabeth Barry , Madge Kendal and Ellen Terry , the...

...most important successor in the part as reshaped by Davenant was James Quin , who played it at different times from 1717 (at Drury Lane ) until 1751 (by which time he had moved to Covent Garden ) , but by then his dignified, oratorical performance as Macbeth, and indeed the lucidly neoclassical script he was using, had been overshadowed by the arrival of David Garrick . In 1744 Garrick advertised Macbeth at Drury Lane ‘as written by Shakespeare’ (‘What does he mean?’, Quin is said to have remarked, ‘don’t I play Macbeth as written by...

...The subsequent stage history of the play has often been shaped by which of its major roles leading actor-managers have preferred. Betterton played Hotspur in 1682 but graduated to Sir John in 1700 (reviving both 2 Henry IV and The Merry Wives of Windsor to give himself even more scope), and this trajectory was repeated by James Quin , who excelled as the fat knight from the early 1720s until his retirement in 1753 . Kemble , however, was too thin and too dignified to move beyond Hotspur (whom he first played in 1791 ), leaving the role of Sir...

...by a full-scale adaptation (although the Jacobite statesman John Sheffield , Earl of Mulgrave, composed a heavily pro-Caesar version in two parts, The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, Altered and The Tragedy of Marcus Brutus , completed around 1716 but never performed). James Quin played Antony in 1718 but in later years was an important Brutus, first at Drury Lane and then, throughout the 1740s and 1750s, at Covent Garden: David Garrick , unsuccessful as Antony in Antony and Cleopatra , did not find any of the leading roles sufficiently commanding,...

The roles of Desdemona and Iago are discussed elsewhere. Great Othellos have included Betterton , Quin , Spranger Barry , J. P. Kemble , and Edmund Kean , whose frightening, animalistic performance in the role was one of his greatest from 1814 until his death (after collapsing onstage in Act 4) in 1833 .
