Description

NBD phallacidin is a high-affinity F-actin probe conjugated to the yellow-green fluorescent dye, NBD.

Selectively stains F-actin
Excitation/Emission: 465/536 nm
Superior to antibody staining
Optimal for fixed and permeabilized samples

Get Superior Results in Actin Staining Studies
Phallacidin is a bicyclic peptide belonging to a family of toxins isolated from the deadly Amanita phalloides "death cap" mushroom and is commonly used in imaging applications to selectively label F-actin. Fluorescently-labeled phallacidin has virtually identical binding properties with actin from different species including plants and animals. Phallacidin binds F-actin with high selectivity while NBD provides yellow-green fluorescence. Demonstrating very little nonspecific staining, NBD phallacidin allows high-contrast discrimination of actin staining.

Use in Multiple Applications
NBD phallacidin can be used to visualize and quantitate F-actin in tissue sections, cell cultures, or cell-free preparations. NBD phallacidin staining is fully compatible with other fluorescent stains used in cellular analyses including fluorescent proteins, Qdot® nanocrystals, and Alexa Fluor® conjugates including secondary antibodies.
