Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Triton X-100 is a common nonionic surfactants. It is mainly required for lysing cells to extract protein and cellular organelles. It can also permeabilize the living cell membrane for transfection. High concentration of triton X-100 or prolonged exposure causes cell death by destructing compactness and integrity of the lipid membrane.

Widely used non-ionic surfactant for recovery of membrane components under mild non-denaturing conditions.

Packaging

1 L in poly bottle

100, 500 mL in poly bottle

Application

• Triton X-100 has been used in the blocking solution during immunocytochemistry procedure.
• It has been used for membrane solubilization of cells.
• It has been used during deglycosylation procedure.
