Pushing the boundaries of science in critical disciplines

August Feature Story

Protein Power

Proteins are the primary effectors of activity in the cell, and thus tools are needed to visualize proteins, show protein modifications, and highlight the intricate interactions between proteins that make life possible. Antibodies are used to specifically target proteins, and when labeled with fluorescent dyes they allow for incredibly sensitive detection of individual proteins and complex protein–protein interactions. The Alexa Fluor® dyes are some of the most effective fluorescent dyes, exhibiting superior brightness and photostability and outperforming conventional fluorescent reagents across the spectrum.
