Product Description

P-Nitro Blue Tetrazolium Chloride

Application Notes

p - nitro blue tetrazolium is used for the detection of alkaline phosphatase on western blots. It has also been used as a redox indicator for other enzymatic reactions including dehydrogenases, threonine deaminase, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, phosphofructokinase on polyacrylamide gels, oxidases on polyacrylamide gels, and pentose shunt dehydrogenases. Redox and halfwave potentials have been determined for p - nitro blue tetrazolium. It has also been used as a colorimetric indicator of bacterial infection in blood samples.
