Probenecid, Sodium Salt, Water Soluble

Probenecid is commonly used to inhibit organic-anion transporters located in the cell membrane. Such transporters can extrude dyes and indicators and thus contribute to low signal or high background in assays due to poor cellular retention of dyes.

Product Description

Probenecid is commonly used to inhibit organic-anion transporters located in the cell membrane. Such transporters can extrude dyes and indicators and thus contribute to low signal or high background in assays due to poor cellular retention of dyes. The use of probenecid to block the efflux of intracellular dyes was first described by Di Virgilio et al. (1990), and it has been used with a wide range of anionic dyes and conjugates. The commonly used free acid form of probenecid is difficult to dissolve, requiring 1M NaOH to prepare a solution. Our water-soluble probenecid sodium salt dissolves quickly in assay buffer and eliminates the need for handling caustic NaOH. Each vial is directly dissolved in 1 mL buffer to make a 250 mM stock solution. Typical working concentrations in cell-based assays are 1-2.5 mM.

    BAPTA, AM Ester

    BAPTA and its derivatives are calcium chelators that are commonly used to form calcium buffers with well-defined calcium concentrations. By injecting the chelators into cells or by incubating cells with the AM ester form of the chelators, one can control the cytosolic calcium concentration, an important means to study the roles of calcium.

    4-Bromo A-23187, Free Acid

    Similar to A-23187, 4-Bromo A-23187 is used for in situ calibrations of fluorescent Ca2+ indicators to equilibrate intracellular and extracellular calcium concentrations and to allow Mn2+ to enter cells to quench indicator fluorescence.

    Fluo-4 AM Ester

    Membrane-permeant form of Fluo-4 calcium indicator. Fluo-4 AM ester itself does not bind Ca2 , but it is readily hydrolyzed to Fluo-4 by endogenous esterases once inside cells.

    Fluo-3, AM Ester

    Membrane-permeant AM ester form of Fluo-3 that can be loaded into cells via incubation. Because of the relatively low water solubility of the AM ester, Pluronic F-127, a mild detergent, is often used as a dispersing agent to facilitate dye loading.

    Calcein AM

    Calcein AM is a widely used green fluorescent cell marker. Calcein AM is membrane-permeant and thus can be introduced into cells via incubation.

    BCECF, AM Ester

    BCECF, AM ester is membrane-permeant and thus can be loaded into cells via incubation. This product is a mixture of three molecular species, all of which are readily hydrolyzed by endogenous esterases into a single BCECF free acid form once they are in the cells.
