Dear Ray,
        Active Motif (Carlsbad, CA) has a reagent called "Chariot" that
they claim can introduce proteins (including antibodies) into live cells.
Tel. 877 222-9543 (toll free) or 760 431-1351.  I have not tried it yet,
but if anyone out there has, I would like to know if it really works.  Best


A recent discussion on the Confocal Listserv, concerning DAPI staining of
viable cells, prompts me to send the following from a colleague:

Is there a way to deliver antibodies, or their fragments, into viable cells?
We have heard of using liposomes, but wondered if perhaps newer techniques
have emerged.
