General description

Annexin V-FITC kit allows fluorescent detection of annexin V bound to apoptotic cells and quantitative determination by flow cytometry. The AnnexinV-FITC kit uses annexin V conjugated with fluorescein isothiocyante (FITC) to label phosphatidylserine sites on the membrane surface. The kit includes propidium iodide (PI) to label the cellular DNA in necrotic cells where the cell membrane has been totally compromised. This combination allows the differentiation among early apoptotic cells (annexin V positive, PI negative), necrotic cells (annexin V positive, PI positive), and viable cells (annexin V negative, PI negative).

Application

Annexin V-FITC Apoptosis Detection Kit was used:
  • in staining of LNCaP prostate cancer cells for measuring the G. lucidum extracts activity during the treatment of prostate cancer.
  • for tumor cell labelling to study the inhibitory activity of DBP-maf (Vitamin D binding protein-macrophage activating factor) on prostate tumor cells.
  • for indirect measurement of flippase activity.

Features and Benefits

Detects apoptosis earlier in the process than DNA-based assays such as TUNEL.
  • Rapid labeling of cells. Cell staining takes only 10 minutes.
  • No cell fixation or processing required, reducing the detection time and allowing the cells to be used for further study.
  • Propidium iodide secondary dye is included with the kit to differentiate apoptotic cells from viable and necrotic cells.

Other Notes

Allow all components to reach room temperature before use.

Lot and Batch Numbers can be found on a product's label following the words 'Lot' or 'Batch'.

Aldrich Products

  • For a lot number such as TO09019TO, enter it as 09019TO (without the first two letters 'TO').

  • For a lot number with a filling-code such as 05427ES-021, enter it as 05427ES (without the filling-code '-021').

  • For a lot number with a filling-code such as STBB0728K9, enter it as STBB0728 without the filling-code 'K9'.

Not Finding What You Are Looking For?

In some cases, a COA may not be available online. If your search was unable to find the COA you can request one.
