Quick Reference

A fluorescent dye that changes its absorption and emission characteristics when calcium is bound. 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 function.
