Triallkit description

The most common use of actin is to analyze and characterize binding of ligands to F-actin. This is also especially useful for the characterization of recombinant proteins and fragments. The Trialkit manual describes how to make F-actin and how to perform functional tests to verify of the biological activity of actin binding proteins. Since a specific binding to actin filaments indicates the correct folding and structural integrity of the actin binding protein itself, the assays provided with this Trialkit are a valuable tool.

The Trialkit is available with 2x0.5mg rabbit skeletal muscle actin (Cat. # T8010-01) or bovine cardiac actin (Cat. # T8100-01). Buffers are included to maintain the biological activity of actin, and a Trialkit Manual introducing to the use of actin. We guarantee a stable performance of the kit components when stored at -70°C upon arrival for 6 months.. 

Purity

>99% by scanning densitometry.

 

 Properties

 

 

Form

Lyophilized, ready-to-use.

Kit content

2x0.5 mg G-Actin (lyophilized powder);
1x50 ml MonoMix (lyophilized G-actin ATP-buffer);
1x1 ml PolyMix 10x stock (lyophilized F-actin ATP-buffer, pH 7.4);
1x Trialkit Manual F-Actin Binding;

Actin Buffer

2mM Tris-Cl pH 8.2, 0.4mM ATP, 0.5mM DTT, 0.1mM CaCl2, 1mM NaN3 and 0.3% disaccharides, when reconstituted with ultrapure water to obtain a 1mg/ml solution.

Related products

For dilution of G-actin or exchange of ligand buffer into actin compatible buffer, MonoMix (Cat. #.: 5100-0*) may be used. In the absence of nucleators, the polymerization of G-actin is initiated by PolyMix (Cat.#: 5000-0*). 

Purification notes

Purified from rabbit skeletal muscle, GPC.

Protein concentration

Determined by the Biuret method.

Storage instructions

We guarantee stable performance of the kit components for 6 months when stored at -70°C upon arrival. Solubilized G-actin is kept on ice and should be used within 1 week. Avoid refreezing.     

Shipping conditions 

At ambient temperature. Upon delivery store at -70°C.
