Phalloidin-iFluor 790 Reagent (ab176763) is one of a series of phalloidin conjugates that bind to actin filaments, also known as F-actin. Phalloidin-iFluor 790 can be detected with a fluorescent microscope at Ex/Em = 787/808 nm (infrared range).
Phalloidin conjugates are convenient probes for labeling, identifying and quantifying animal or plant actin filaments in formaldehyde-fixed and permeabilized tissue sections, cell cultures or cell-free experiments. They can also be used in paraffin-embedded samples that have been de-paraffinized.
Phalloidin binds to actin filaments much more tightly than to actin monomers, leading to a decrease in the dissociation rate of actin subunits from filaments ends, essentially stabilizing actin filaments through the prevention of filament depolymerization.
