DAPI stands for 4',6-diamidino-2-phenylindole dihydrochloride. It is a
nucleophillic fluorescent dye that attaches at the AT-rich site in the minor
groove of DNA. Excite at 325 nm and demonstrates bright fluoscence. Hope
this helps. Donna Montague, UAMS Orthopaedic Research

DAPI containing aquas (actual
                                       spelling) mounting media.  Thanks for
your wisdom.
