F-actin Staining Kit - Green Fluorescence | Cytopainter (ab112125) fluorescence imaging kits are a set of fluorescence imaging tools for labeling sub-cellular organelles such as lysosomes, mitochondria, and actin filaments. The selective staining of cell compartments provides a powerful method for studying cellular events in a spatial and temporal context.
ab112125 is designed to stain F-actins in fixed cells with green fluorescence. The kit uses a green fluorescent phalloidin conjugate that is selectively bound to F-actins. This green fluorescent phalloidin conjugate is a high-affinity probe for F-actins. When used at nanomolar concentrations, phallotoxins are convenient probes for labeling, identifying and quantitating F-actins in formaldehyde-fixed and permeabilized tissue sections, cell cultures or cell-free experiments.
ab112125 provides all the essential components with an optimized staining protocol, which is robust requiring minimal hands-on time. It is an excellent tool for preserving the fluorescent images of particular cells. The phalloidin conjugate has spectral properties similar to those of FITC (Ex/Em = 500/520 nm). It can also be used for fluorescence microscope demonstrations using FITC filter (Ex/Em = 490/525 nm).
ab112125 should be stored dessicated.
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Please refer to protocols.
