RediStain™ WormDye Lipid Green
RediStain™ WormDye Lipid Green is an intrinsically lipophilic fluorophore that can be used to effectively track lipids inside C. elegans. When using Lipid Green, native lipid droplet morphology is preserved and fat content per body volume can be quantified in individual worms.
The figure above shows comparison of C. elegans fat storage using 2 different dye staining techniques. Intestinal and epidermal fat in an adult C. elegans has been stained using RediStain™ WormDye Lipid Green (B) and Nile Red (C). It takes 20 minutes stain live worms using WormDye Lipid Green vs. 3 days using Nile Red on plates.
