Abstract

Click chemistry in vivo: Three phosphatidic acid derivatives with alkyne groups in their fatty acid chains were synthesized and incorporated into mammalian cell membranes. Copper(I)-catalyzed and strain-promoted azide-alkyne cycloaddition reactions were used for their visualization (see schematic representation and fluorescence microscopic image).
