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.

Bis-sulfone Amine (CCT-1148)



Bis-sulfone Amine is a bis-alkylating labeling reagent that is selective for the cysteine sulfur atoms from a native disulfide. These reagents undergo bis-alkylation to conjugate both thiols derived from the two cysteine residues of a reduced native disulfide bond such as the interchain disulfide bonds of an antibody. The reaction results in covalent rebridging of the disulfide bond via a three carbon bridge leaving the protein structurally intact.

The covalent, site-specific conjugation of PEG to a polyhistidine tag (His-tag) on a protein with bis-alkylating reagents was also reported in literature (see Selected References section).
