6-fluorescein (FAM) derivative of deoxycytidine triphosphate (dCTP).

FAM 6-isomer is a common fluorophore used for labeling biomolecules; FAM has a high quantum yield and bright emission in the green spectrum.

FAM-11-dCTP can be used for enzymatic DNA labeling via Nick-translation, 3’-end labeling, random primed labeling, PCR, or cDNA synthesis. FAM-11-dCTP is incorporated into the growing DNA-chain by Taq-polymerase, DNA-polymerase I, Phi 29 polymerase, Klenow fragment, reverse transcriptase, or terminal transferase.

The linker length (11 carbon atoms) is optimal for the efficient incorporation of fluorescence-labeled dCTP into the growing DNA chain.

Labeled DNA can be used for FISH experiments, microarray gene profiling, Southern blot, and Northern blot.
