FluoTag®-X2 anti-VGLUT1

FluoTag®-X2 anti-VGLUT1

Direct immunofluorescence labeling of a cultured hippocampus neuron (1:500). Nerve-terminals positive for VGLUT1 were visualized with FluoTag-X2 anti-VGLUT1 AbberiorSTAR® 580 (false color representation in green). Counterstaining with rabbit anti-MAP2 Cy5 (false color representation in red) and dapi (blue).

FluoTag®-X2 anti-VGLUT1 is derived from a single-domain antibody (sdAb) recognizing specifically VGLUT1 with high affinity and specificity. Our FluoTag-X2 series features two site-specifically coupled fluorophores per molecule. The reagent can therefore simultaneously target two fluorophores to each target molecule, which results in an enhanced signal. The FluoTag®-X2 anti-VGLUT1 is validated for immunofluorescence and immunohistochemistry applications. In contrast to conventional antibodies, our FluoTags are monovalent and therefore do not cross-link their target proteins. Our FluoTag®-X2 anti-VGLUT1 is therefore ideally suited for various microscopy applications.
