Sphingosine Beads

Product Number: S-6100


Lipid coated beads are designed for use in protein pull-down experiments. Use to test for lipid binding of purified protein, proteins in cell lysate, or binding of radiolabeled in vitro translation products.

Sphingosine Beads are composed of agarose with 10 nanomoles of bound Sphingosine per mL of beads, enough for several protein binding experiments. Each 1 mL order includes a small amount of control beads. Larger quantities of Control Beads are also available for purchase.
