Equatorial isomer, for the corresponding isomeric mixture please inquire. BCMCM-caged cAMP is an only weakly fluorescent, caged precursor of the second messenger cyclic AMP, which upon irradiation, releases both cAMP and a fluorescent coumarin analogue. Excellent solubility in water or buffers. Detailed technical information available. Reference: Hagen et al., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 40, 1045 - 1048 (2001).
