Cell Navigator® F-Actin Labeling Kit *Red Fluorescence*

Fluorescence image of HeLa cells fixed with 4% formaldehyde then stained with Cell Navigator® F-Actin Labeling Kit *Red Fluorescence* in a Costar black 96-well plate. Cells were labeled with iFluor® 594-Phalloidin (Cat#22664, Red) and nuclei stain DAPI (Cat#17507, Blue), respectively. Cell endoplasmic reticulum (ER) was stained with ER Green™ (Cat#22635, Green) before fixation.

Our Cell Navigator® fluorescence imaging kits are a set of fluorescence imaging tools for labeling sub-cellular organelles such as membranes, lysosomes, mitochondria and nuclei etc. The selective labeling of live cell compartments provides a powerful method for studying cellular events in a spatial and temporal context. This particular kit is designed to label F-actins of fixed cells in red fluorescence. The kit uses a red fluorescent phalloidin conjugate that is selectively bound to F-actins. This red fluorescent phalloidin conjugate is a high-affinity probe for F-actins. Used at nanomolar concentrations, phallotoxins are convenient probes for labeling, identifying and quantitating F-actins in formaldehyde-fixed and permeabilized tissue sections, cell cultures or cell-free experiments. The labeling protocol is robust, requiring minimal hands-on time. The kit provides all the essential components with an optimized staining protocol.

Example protocol


AT A GLANCE

Protocol summary

  1. Prepare samples (microplate wells)
  2. Remove the liquid from the plate
  3. Add 100 µL/well of iFluor™ 594-Phalloidin working solution
  4. Stain the cells at RT for 15 to 60 minutes
  5. Wash the cells
  6. Examine the specimen under fluorescence microscope at Ex/Em = 594/610 nm (Texas Red channel)

Important notes
Thaw all the components at room temperature before starting the experiment.

PREPARATION OF WORKING SOLUTION

Add 10 μL of iFluor™ 594-Phalloidin (Component A) to 10 mL of Labeling Buffer (Component B) to make 1X iFluor™ 594-Phalloidin working solution. Protect from light. Note: Different cell types might be stained differently. The concentration of iFluor™ 594-Phalloidin working solution should be prepared accordingly.

SAMPLE EXPERIMENTAL PROTOCOL

  1. Perform formaldehyde fixation. Incubate the cells with 3.0 – 4.0% formaldehyde in PBS at room temperature for 10 – 30 minutes. Note: Avoid any methanol containing fixatives since methanol can disrupt actin during the fixation process. The preferred fixative is methanol-free formaldehyde.

  2. Rinse the fixed cells 2 – 3 times in PBS.

  3. Optional: Add 0.1% Triton X-100 in PBS into fixed cells for 3 to 5 minutes to increase permeability. Rinse the cells 2 – 3 times in PBS.

  4. Add 100 µL/well (96-well plate) of iFluor™ 594-Phalloidin working solution into the fixed cells.

  5. Stain the cells at room temperature for 15 to 60 minutes.

  6. Rinse cells gently with PBS 2 to 3 times to remove excess dye before plate sealing.

  7. Image cells using a fluorescence microscope with Texas Red channel (Ex/Em = 594/610 nm).
