TMR Biocytin

TMR biocytin is a cell-impermeant, fixable polar tracer that combines the tetramethylrhodamine (TAMRA) with biotin and an aldehyde-fixable primary amine.  Polar tracers are commonly used to investigate cell-cell and cell-liposome fusion as well as membrane permeability and transport through gap junctions or cell uptake during pinocytosis.

Product Description

TMR biocytin is a cell-impermeant, fixable polar tracer that combines the tetramethylrhodamine (TAMRA) with biotin and an aldehyde-fixable primary amine.  Polar tracers are commonly used to investigate cell-cell and cell-liposome fusion as well as membrane permeability and transport through gap junctions or cell uptake during pinocytosis. TMR biocytin has proved to be an effective neuronal tracer in live tissue when applied by electroporation1.

    CF® Dye Biocytin

    CF® dye biocytin is a cell-impermeant, fixable polar tracer that is a conjugate of CF® dye and biotin with an aldehyde-fixable primary amine. Polar tracers are commonly used to investigate cell-cell and cell-liposome fusion as well as membrane permeability and transport through gap junctions or cell uptake during pinocytosis.

    CF® Dye Hydrazide

    Fluorescent CF® dye hydrazides are bright, extremely water-soluble, nontoxic molecules, useful as aldehyde-fixable cell tracers. They can also be used to label aldehyde or ketone groups of polysaccharides, carbohydrates or glycoproteins.

    Bovine Serum Albumin CF® Dye Conjugates

    Bright and photostable fluorescent BSA conjugates for applications in which well-defined molecular weight fluid phase tracers are needed. These applications include studying the rate of endocytosis and exocytosis and following vesicle trafficking.
