  • Suitable for use with cell or tissue extracts in biochemical assays;

 

Description

 

 

Protein

Rhodamine-Actin

Origin

Bovine cardiac muscle

Molecular mass

42kDa

Toolkit description

The Actin-Toolkit Microinjection all-in-one kit contains rhodamine conjugated α-actin to be microinjected into either normal or transfected cells. For this purpose purified actin was covalently labeled at Cys 374 with tetramethylrhodamine, leaving the polymerization properties of actin essentially unimpaired. 
 

The Actin-Toolkit Microinjection contains 5x100µg Rhodamine-Actin (Rh-Actin), rhodamine conjugated BSA as a reference, ATP-buffers suited for microinjection of actin and mini filter units for the convenient preparation of injectable actin. A handbook is provided with the kit, giving a detailed description of the use of actin for the microinjection technique for a safe and error-free handling of Rhodamine-Actin.

Purity

>99% by scanning densitometry.
