This product is concanavalin A (Con A) labeled with our superior green fluorescent dye CF488A. Con A is a widely used lectin that selectively binds to a-mannopyranosyl and a-glucopyranosy residues.
CF488A (Ex/Em = 490/515 nm) is a superior alternative to the traditional green fluorescent dye FITC (or fluorescein) owing to its exceptional brightness and photostability. CF488A has brightness and photostability comparable to Alexa Fluor? 488.
