Vector Laboratories is closed for the President’s Day on Monday, February 19th. We will be back in the office on Tuesday, February 20th.
We will respond to emails upon our return. Have a wonderful day.

Alkyne Sphinganine (CCT-1452)



Alkyne Sphinganine a metabolic labeling reagent that contains a terminal alkyne moiety that allows for the subsequent tagging of protein−lipid complexes by click chemistry. The terminal alkyne group can be used in a highly specific linking reaction with azide-containing reagents, known as ‘click chemistry’, in the presence of a copper (Cu)-containing catalyst allowing for the visualization and proteomic profiling of protein−sphingolipid complexes in living cells.
