Remarks

Due to the positive charge of mCLING, negatively charged coatings of cover-slips should be avoided. We recommend a positively charged coating like poly-L-lysine (PLL). mCLING is a fixable dye but paraformaldehyde alone is not able to fix this molecule sufficiently. Therefore, a mixture of 4 %paraformaldehyde (PFA) and 0.2 % glutaraldehyde is strongly advised. For detailed protocols see Revelo NH & Rizzoli SO, 2016.

Since the dye selected for coupling can have an impact on the mCling properties, full functionality of the resulting conjugate cannot be guaranteed.

Background
The membrane-binding fluorophore-cysteine-lysine-palmtoyl group (mCLING) is a new probe that selectively binds to the plasma membrane. It is taken up during endocytosis and, in contrast to conventional membrane dyes, remains attached to membranes after fixation and permeabilization and can therefore be combined with immunostaining and super-resolution microscopy.
mCLING was used so far in mammalian-cultured cells, yeast, bacteria, primary cultured neurons, Drosophila melanogaster larval neuromuscular junctions, and mammalian tissue.
