The phosphatase inhibitor cocktail improves the yields of intact proteins by adding inhibitors to enzymes that modify proteins present in cell extracts. This product has been optimized and tested for tyrosine protein phosphatases, acid and alkaline phosphatases. It has been tested on cell extracts from animal tissues including bovine liver and human placenta, and cytosolic extract of rabbit muscle.
This mixture contains individual components with specific inhibitory properties. Sodium orthovanadate inhibits a number of ATPases, protein tyrosine phosphatases, and other phosphate-transferring enzymes. Sodium molybdate inhibits acid and phosphoprotein phosphatases. Sodium tartrate inhibits acid phosphatases. Imidazole inhibits alkaline phosphatases.

As supplied, this product is stable for two years at the recommended 2-8°C storage temperature.
This cocktail is supplied as a clear aqueous solution. It has been sterile filtered through a 0.2 μm membrane in bottles that have been aseptically filled. One mL will inhibit phosphatase activities found in the 100,000 x g supernatant from human placenta, bovine liver, rabbit muscle, A431, or Jurkat cell extracts at a protein concentration of approximately 5 mg/mL.
