BAPTA conjugated to KLH.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, with 0.08% sodium azide.


Anti-BAPTA antibody produced in rabbit is suitable for immunoblotting, immunofluorescence or immunoprecipitation at 1-10 μg/mL. The antibody is used in determining spatial distribution of BAPTA through immunocytochemistry and confocal microscopy of cortical neurons loaded with BAPTA/AM, an analog. It is also useful in determining kinetics of loading and efflux of BAPTA through ELISAs and immunocytochemistry.

General description

BAPTA is a highly selective calcium chelator. BAPTA and its analog BAPTA/AM have been extensively used in cell physiology research for defining the mechanisms underlying inter- or intracellular calcium homeostasis and calcium dependent exocytosis. They may also be used in the study of diseases in which the regulation of excitatory neurotransmitter release and uptake has been disturbed.
