sampler set of cytoskeleton/adhesion inhibitors? - a new compound inducing wierd phenotypes (Aug/19/2010 )

recently we synthesised a new compound inducing wierd phenotypes. I guess the compound interferes with cytoskeleton or cell adhesion. I would like to find out what is going on. One way can be try know compounds and compare phenotypes. Individual inhibitors are prety expensive if you would like to have a "panel", so I am interested whether there are some sampler kits where there is only a small amount of the individual inhibitors?

thank you for reply


Different compoundtend to have different modes of action and affect more than one part of cell function. You might be better off looking a various proteins such as actin, laminin, fibronectin etc. on western blots.
