Phosphatidylserine Apoptosis Kit (Blue Fluorescence 405) is a fluorescent assay used to monitor cell apoptosis through measuring the translocation of phosphatidylserine.
Annexins are a family of calcium-dependent phospholipid-binding proteins. They are abundant in eukaryotic organisms belonging to a family of ubiquitous cytoplasmic proteins involved in signal transduction. Annexin V"s preferential binding partner is phosphatidylserine (PS), which is usually kept on the inner-leaflet (the cytosolic side) of cell membranes. In apoptosis, PS is transferred to the outer leaflet of the plasma membrane. The appearance of phosphatidylserine on the cell surface is a universal indicator of the initial/intermediate stages of cell apoptosis and can be detected before morphological changes can be observed.
This kit is a set of tool for monitoring cellular functions, which are designed to monitor cell apoptosis through measuring the translocation of phosphatidylserine.
