Overview

  • Product name
    RuBi-GABA
  • Description
    Novel caged-GABA compound, uncaged by visible light
  • Biological description
    Novel caged-GABA compound that uses a ruthenium complex as photosensor. Can be excited with visible wavelengths, providing greater tissue penetration, less photo-toxicity, and faster photorelease kinetics than other UV light-sensitive caged compounds. Can be used for GABA receptor mapping, and optical silencing of neuronal firing.
  • General notes

    RuBi-GABA is light sensitive and it is recommended that the compound is protected from light.
