Synonym: 1-tridecanecarboxylic acid fluorescein; Tetradecanoic acid fluorescein.
Myristic acid fluorescein is one of SLT's fatty acid lipid fluorescein conjugates that is highly hydrophobic. Myristic acid is a saturated C14 fatty acid that can interact well with hydrophobic cell membrane or lysome membrane. Fluorescein modified myristic acid has strong green fluorescence with exitation/emission at 494 nm/515 nm. Myristic acid-fluorescein thus can be an excellent membrane imaging agent.
