SNAP-Cell® 505-Star

SNAP-Cell® 505-Star is a photostable green fluorescent substrate that can be used to label SNAP-tag® fusion proteins inside living cells, on cell surfaces, or in vitro.

  • It is a cell-permeable substrate (CP-6-505) based on the single isomer 6-carboxyrhodamine 110
  • It is suitable for standard fluorescein filter sets
  • It has an excitation maximum at 504 nm and an emission maximum at 532 nm

  • Product Information
    This package contains 50 nmol of SNAP-Cell 505-Star substrate, sufficient to make 10 ml of a 5 µM SNAP-tag fusion protein labeling solution.

    The SNAP-tag protein labeling system enables the specific, covalent attachment of virtually any molecule to a protein of interest. The SNAP-tag is a protein based on human O6-alkylguanine-DNA alkyltransferase (hAGT). SNAP-tag substrates are fluorophores, biotin or beads conjugated to guanine or chloropyrimidine leaving groups via a benzyl linker. In the labeling reaction, the substituted benzyl group of the substrate is covalently attached to the SNAP-tag.

    There are two steps to using this system: subcloning and expression of the protein of interest as a SNAP-tag fusion, and labeling of the fusion with the SNAP-tag substrate of choice. Expression of SNAP-tag fusion proteins is described in the documentation supplied with SNAP-tag plasmids. The labeling of the fusion proteins with the SNAP-tag substrate is described below.
