Cat. No. 3349
Chemical Name: N6-[5-[(3aS,4S,6aR)-Hexahydro-2-oxo
Biological ActivityVersatile 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.
