Targeting Tools: MonoBiotin-ZAP

The conjugation specialists at Advanced Targeting Systems are proud to announce a new addition to the catalog: MonoBiotin-ZAP Cat. #BT-ZAP Researchers now have more freedom in selecting conjugation strategies. Users have taken advantage of the ability to use biotinylated targeting agents with Streptavidin-ZAP (Cat. #IT-27) a chemical conjugate between saporin and streptavidin. Streptavidin-ZAP converts biotinylated …

Targeting Tools: Anti-ChAT-SAP

Choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) catalyzes the synthesis of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh) from choline and acetyl-CoA in cholinergic neurons. ChAT serves as a specific marker for cholinergic neurons in both peripheral and central nervous systems. Evidence shows that ChAT exists in two forms inside cholinergic nerve terminals, a soluble hydrophilic form and the membrane-associated amphiphilic form.[1-2] …
