DiOC6(3) -(3,3′-dihexyloxacarbocyanine iodide) - is a fluorescent dye used for the staining of a cell's ER (endoplasmic reticulum), vesicle membranes and mitochondria. Binding to these structures occurs via the dye's hydrophilic groups. DiOC6 can be used to label living cells, however they are quickly damaged due to photodynamic toxicity, so cells stained with this dye can only be exposed to light for short periods of time. When exposed to blue light, the dye fluoresces green.
