Enzymes and Inhibitors

EMD Millipore™ Calbiochem™ Caspase-8 Detection Kit (FITC-IETD-FMK)

Convenient, and sensitive method to measure caspase-8 in living cells

EMD Millipore™ Calbiochem™ N-Acetylneuraminic Acid, 2,3-Dehydro-2-deoxy-, Sodium Salt

Inhibitor of bacterial, viral, and mammalian neuraminidases

Pectinase, Aspergillus niger, Alfa Aesar™

Used in plant protoplast preparation to digest cell wall prior to organelle isolation. Pectinase helps facilitate the maceration of plant materials and extraction processes including organelle preparation.

EMD Millipore™ Calbiochem™ Horseradish Peroxidase

Suitable for conjugation to proteins and antibodies and as cytochemical marker in immunohistochemical staining

EMD Millipore™ Calbiochem™ Lysozyme, Chicken Egg White

Inhibits biological activity of lipopolysaccharides from periodontopathic bacteria

Deoxyribonuclease I, bovine pancreas, Alfa Aesar™

Used for the removal of DNA from protein samples.

EMD Millipore™ Calbiochem™ Caspase Detection Kit (Red-VAD-FMK)

For detection of activated caspases in living cells

EMD Millipore™ Calbiochem™ EDTA, Tetrasodium Tetrahydrate Salt

Used in ion exchange, metal chelation, antioxidation procedures, spectrophotometric titration, and other chemical procedures

Deoxyribonuclease I, bovine pancreas, Purified, Alfa Aesar™

Used in RNA preparations from tissue or bacterial cell cultures. Deoxyribonuclease is used to remove DNA from protein samples, It is also used in a study to compare several procedures for reducing RNase contamination in preparations of DNase.

Ribonuclease B, bovine pancreas, Alfa Aesar™

Used to remove RNA from DNA plasmid preparations and protein samples. Ribonuclease A is used for RNase protection assays, to remove unspecifically bound RNA, analysis of RNA sequences, to hydrolyze RNA contained in protein samples, and the purification of DNA.

Proteinase K, Tritirachium album limber, Alfa Aesar™

Commonly used in molecular biology to digest protein and remove contamination from preparations of nucleic acid. Addition of Proteinase K to nucleic acid preparations rapidly inactivates nucleases that might otherwise degrade the DNA or RNA during purification.

Hexokinase, yeast, Alfa Aesar™

Used to catalyzes the phosphorylation of D-hexose sugars at the C6 position utilizing, ATP as a phosphate source. Used to determine glucose, fructose, mannose and ATP.

EMD Millipore™ Calbiochem™ Caspase-3 Detection Kit (Red-DEVD-FMK)

For detection of activated caspase-3 in living cells

EMD Millipore™ Calbiochem™ Caspase Detection Kit (FITC-VAD-FMK)

For detection of activated caspases in living cells

EMD Millipore™ Calbiochem™ N-Acetyllactosamine

Useful as lectin inhibitory sugar

EMD Millipore™ Calbiochem™ BQ-788, Sodium Salt

Highly selective ETB-receptor antagonist
