TRITC DHPE is a phospholipid that is labeled on the head group with the bright, red-fluorescent TRITC dye. Rhodamine-labeled phospholipids have been used as tracers for membrane traffic during endocytosis and for lipid processing in hepatocytes. TRITC DHPE can be used as an energy transfer acceptor from NBD, BODIPY and fluorescein lipid probes. The lo
nger emission wavelength of the TRITC dye provides superior separation of the do
nor and acceptor emission signals in reso
nance energy transfer microscopy.
