Actin Chromobody for live-cell super-resolution …

The ChromoTek Actin Chromobody is a live-cell probe for visualization of the actin cytoskeleton and monitoring its dynamics. The Actin Chromobody enables non-invasive labeling of actin microfilaments not only in mammalian cells, but also in cells and tissues of evolutionary distant species, such as Zebrafish (Panza et al. 2015) or … – Read more

Nano-Booster FAQs

ChromoTek Nano-Boosters are ideal for Super-Resolution and “traditional” fluorescence microscopy because of their high affinity and extremely small size of just 2 to 3 nm. Technically speaking, the GFP-and RFP-Boosters are composed of the highly specific GFP- or RFP-binding domains of alpaca antibodies (also called “nanobodies”), … – Read more

How to elute GFP-fusion protein from the GFP-Trap®

Binding of GFP-fusion proteins to the ChromoTek GFP-Trap® is very strong (this Nano-Trap has a dissociation constant in the pico molar range) and allows stringent washing, because it is stable up to 70°C and functional active in up to: – Read more
