Descripción general

Triton X-100 is a common non-ionic surfactant and emulsifier which is often used in biochemical applications to solubilize proteins. It is considered a comparatively mild detergent, non-denaturing, and is reported in numerous references as a routinely added reagent. It is utilized for lysing cells to extract protein and cellular organelles. It can also permeabilize the living cell membrane for transfection.

Aplicación

Triton X-100 has been used:
  • In immunohistochemistry for staining the Flat-mount retinas
  • Along with ice-cold PBS (phosphate buffered saline) in suspension of cells for cell DNA analysis and Annexin V assay
  • To permeabilise cells during Immunofluorescent microscopic studies
  • As a positive control in LDH assay to determine the cell membrane integrity
  • For estimating the lipase activity in postheparin plasma by using modified Belfrage and Vaughan radioenzymatic procedure
  • For the preparation of outer membrane protein exctract
  • As a component of extraction buffer along with tris-HCl, NaCl, CaCl2, ZnCl2, Brij 35 for homogenization of mice lung cells
  • In the treatment of tissue sections for Immunofluorescence labeling

Envase

50, 100, 250 mL in poly bottle

Acciones bioquímicas o fisiológicas

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