Application

  • Nitrotetrazolium Blue chloride has been used to detect the generation of oxygen metabolites in cells.
  • It has been used as a substrate for western blot detection.
  • It has been used for the staining of histological tissue sections.

Packaging

10×10, 50, 100, 250, 500 mg in glass insert
1, 5 g in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Nitrotetrazolium blue (NBT), in combination with BCIP (5-bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl-phosphate), is required for the detection of labeled probes in western blots. It is part of the colorimetric detection assay. NBT and BCIP dyes detect alkaline phosphatase activity, thereby generating an insoluble purple dye (diformazan). The dye is visible at areas where the labeled probe has hybridized to its target.

Substrates

Substrate for dehydrogenases and other oxidases.

Colorimetric Alkaline Phosphatase and Peroxidase Substrate Detection Systems

Nitroblue Tetrazolium (NBT) is used with the alkaline phosphatase substrate 5-Bromo- 4-Chloro-3-Indolyl Phosphate (BCIP) in western blotting and immunohistological staining procedures. These substrate systems produce an insoluble NBT diformazan end product that is blue to purple in color and can be observed visually.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
