Vector Labs is closed to observe Juneteenth (US Holiday) on Wednesday, June 19th.
We will be back in the office on Thursday. We will respond to emails upon our return. Have a wonderful day.

6-Azide-Trehalose (6-TreAz) (CCT-1472)



Metabolic labeling with unnatural sugar substrates is a powerful alternative for investigating glycoconjugates in living organisms. Trehalose glycolipids can be metabolically labeled with 6-azide-modified trehalose (TreAz) analogues in live mycobacteria, enabling bioorthogonal ligation with alkyne-functionalized fluorescent probes. This strategy can be used for imaging glycolipid distribution, trafficking, and dynamics as well as metabolite profiling and discovery.
