The rhodamine derivatives tetramethyl-rhodamine-5/6-maleimide (TROMI) and tetramethyl-rhodamine-6-isothiocyanate (TRITC) were allowed to react with living Hydra vulgaris. The two fluorescent dyes stain the polyps to different degrees, apparently without impairing their viability and behaviour. Concerning nematocytes, TROMI preferentially couples to cytoskeletal elements only of mounted nematocytes whereas TRITC selectively reacts with structural components of cysts of late nematoblasts, which… CONTINUE READING
