Fluor® 633 dye.
Get Superior Results in Actin Staining Studies
- Selectively stains F-actin
- Outstanding fluorescence performance
- Excitation⁄Emission: 632⁄647 nm
- Superior to antibody staining
- Optimal for fixed and permeabilized samples
Phalloidin is a bicyclic peptide belonging to a family of toxins
isolated from the deadly Amanita phalloides
mushroom and is
commonly used in imaging applications to selectively label F-actin.
Fluorescently-labeled phalloidin has virtually identical binding
properties with actin from different species including plants and
animals. Phalloidin binds F-actin with high selectivity while Alexa
Fluor® 633 provides far-red fluorescence of unparalleled brightness
and photostability. Demonstrating very little nonspecific staining,
Alexa Fluor® 633 phalloidin allows high-contrast discrimination of
actin staining.Use in Multiple Applications
Alexa Fluor® 633 phalloidin can be used to visualize and quantitate
F-actin in tissue sections, cell cultures, or cell-free preparations.
Alexa Fluor® 633 phalloidin staining is fully compatible with other
fluorescent stains used in cellular analyses including fluorescent
proteins, Qdot® nanocrystals, and other Alexa Fluor® conjugates
including secondary antibodies.
