  • We present a membrane-staining dye, di-4-ANEPPDHQ, which differentiates liquid-ordered phases from liquid-disordered phases coexisting in model membranes under both linear and nonlinear microscopies. The dye's fluorescence emission spectrum is blue-shifted 60 nm in liquid-ordered phases compared with liquid-disordered phases, and shows strong second harmonic generation in the liquid-disordered phase compared with the liquid-ordered phase. The ease of staining and the ability of this single dye… CONTINUE READING
