Vector Labs is closed to observe Independence Day (US Holiday) on Thursday, July 4th.
We will be back in the office on Friday. We will respond to emails upon our return. Have a wonderful day.

TAMRA Biotin Alkyne (CCT-1366)


Whilst biotin is a highly effective affinity label, fluorescent labels provide a more sensitive, quantitative, and convenient method for visualizing proteins. Trifunctional click chemistry probes that incorporate a ligation handle, a biotin and a fluorophore straightforwardly extended to combine the complementary benefits of both types of label. Dual-label TAMRA Biotin Azide probe can be readily incorporated into alkyne-tagged biomolecules through CuAAC ligation. For example, dual-labeled newly synthesized proteins, glycans, lipids, or DNA/RNA can be readily isolated by affinity purification and visualized by in-gel fluorescence.

Another very important advantage of dual label probes over regular biotin probes is built-in control. Each step of enrichment process can easily followed either by UV-Vis (550 nm) or by more sensitive fluorescence spectroscopy. After elution form streptavidin beads target proteins containing TAMRA label can be easily distinguished from non-specifically bound proteins and endogenously biotinlytated proteins.

This new dual label probe should be useful to expand the new applications of standard biotin–streptavidin technology.
