Diphenylterazine is a bioluminescence agent.

In Vitro

Diphenylterazine is a bioluminescence agent. Diphenylterazine alone yields very little background, leading to excellent signal-to-background ratios. Furthermore, Diphenylterazine elicits minimal cell toxicity at millimolar concentrations. Diphenylterazine injections into untransfected BALB/c mice do not yield any background emission. The bioluminescence resulting from intraperitoneally injected Diphenylterazine displays extended kinetics[1].

Solvent & Solubility
In Vitro: 

H2O : < 0.1 mg/mL (insoluble; DMSO can inactivate Diphenylterazine's activity)

Cell Assay

BALB/c mice are used and transfected with cells expressing teLuc, Antares, Antares2 and FLuc by injecting cells into the tail vein of BALB/c mice. After the diminishing of the FLuc bioluminescence, 0.3 µmol Diphenylterazine or furimazine is intraperitoneally injected. Mice are imaged with a 1-min exposure per frame over a course of 20 min. The images are processed using the Fiji image analysis software and the frames with highest signals in individual experiments are used for comparison[1].
