PhenoVue Fluor 488 - Concanavalin A is a fluorescent lectin which displays high affinity for glycoproteins and glycolipids present at the cellular membranes. It can be used for cellular membrane staining, particularly the endoplasmic reticulum.
PhenoVue Fluor 488 - Concanavalin A exhibits bright green fluorescence and is validated for use in imaging microscopy and high-content screening applications.
Part of PerkinElmer's portfolio of cellular imaging reagents, PhenoVue Fluor 488 - Concanavalin A has a maximum excitation wavelength of 495 nm and a maximum emission wavelength of 520 nm.
Concanavalin A is a plant homotetrameric lectin known to activate the immune system or induce apoptosis and autophagy. Concanavalin A displays high affinity for α-mannopyranosyl and α-glucopyranosyl residues of glycoproteins and glycolipids present at the cellular membranes.
Fluorescent Concanavalin A derivatives are commonly used for staining the cellular membranes of mammalian cells, particularly the endoplasmic reticulum.
PhenoVue Fluor 488 - Concanavalin A can be used to visualize cellular membranes in immunofluorescence, immunohistochemistry and flow cytometry, as well as high-content analysis and screening applications.
