Adriamycin specific fluorescence appears slowly in living cells and is localized in nuclei and chromosomes. N Trifluoroacetyladriamycin 14 valerate, a recently synthesized adriamycin analog, differs from the parent anthracycline in the rapid appearance of its fluorescence in the cytoplasm of living cells and the lack of any fluorescent binding to nuclei and chromosomes.
