Extracellular antibodies are ideal research tools for cell-surface proteins.
No permeabilization/fixation because using extracellular antibodies allows you to work with live cells!
Benefits of live cell imaging:
✓ Monitor cell movement
✓ Study protein transport across the cell
✓ Investigate protein internalization
Magnesium is one of the most abundant cation in the cell. It is crucial for the proper functioning of various tissues such as the brain, muscle, bone and the nervous system. Currently there are only two types of Mg2+ transport systems which have had their complete structures discovered. MgtE and CorA are the prokaryotic homologues of the SLC41 and MRS2 magnesium transporters.
