Fura-2, AM ester


Catalog #: 50033; 50033-1; 50034.

Product Description

Fura-2, AM ester is membrane-permeant and thus can be loaded into cells via incubation. Because of the relatively low water solubility of the AM ester, the mild detergent Pluronic F-127 (catalog no. 59004) is often used as a dispersing agent to facilitate cell loading. Fura-2, AM ester itself does not bind Ca2+, but it is readily hydrolyzed to Fura-2 by endogenous esterases once it enters cells.
