R&D Fluorokine Receptor Detection Kits - Biotinylated ligands for estimating receptor densities

R&D Systems now offers a Human Activin A Biotinylated Fluorokine Kit (Catalog # NFACTA). This flow cytometry kit is designed for the detection of Activin A receptor-expressing cells by flow cytometry. Activin A is a disulfide-linked homodimer belonging to the TGF-beta superfamily that signals through Type I/Type II receptor complexes. It is involved in the regulation of a variety of processes including mesoderm induction, endoderm and neural cell differentiation, bone remodeling, hematopoiesis, and inflammation. The Activin A Fluorokine Kit utilizes biotinylated human Activin A and avidin-fluorescein to label cells expressing Activin A receptors. Fluorescent cells are subsequently detected by flow cytometry.

Features of the R&D Fluorokine Kit (Human Activin A Biotinylated) include:

• Determine the percentage of cells bearing receptors within a population 
• Estimate the receptor density on cell surfaces 
• Can be used with peripheral blood cells and cultured cells
• Biotinylated ligands mirror physiological ligand/receptor interactions 
• Negative control provided in the form of biotinylated control proteins 
• Pretreatment with blocking antibody supports the protein-specificity of the binding 
• Binding specificity can be further supported by applying non-conjugated ligand (not included)

R&D Human Activin A Biotinylated Fluorokine Kit Contents:

• Biotinylated recombinant, species specific ligand 
• Avidin conjugated with fluorescein (at an f:p ratio of 5:1) 
• Negative control reagents 
• Blocking antibody 
• Wash buffer concentrate
