Catalog Number: 3349
Chemical Name: N6-[5-[(3aS,4S,6aR)-Hexahydro-2-oxo-1H-thieno[3,4-d]imidazol-4-yl]-1-oxopentyl]-L-lysine
Biological Activity
Versatile marker used in anterograde, retrograde and intracellular neuroanatomical investigations and in biotinidase assays. Displays high solubility in aqueous solutions and has a low molecular weight facilitating injection using micropipettes. Can be incorporated with a variety of avidin and streptavidin conjugates for detection by light, fluorescence or electron microscope.
