Product: Octyl Glucopyranoside
Description: Non–ionic detergent intended for solubilizing membrane–bound proteins in their native state and for the preparation of lipid vesicles. Its well–defined chemical structure, small uniform micelles, and high water solubility make it superior to most other nonionic detergents for membrane solubilization. Because of its high critical micelle concentration (20-25 mM), it has the additional advantage of being removed easily by dialysis when compared to bile salts.
