Citraconic Anhydride is a convenient, reversible amine blocking reagent. This protein modification reagent converts primary amines to amide groups with a terminal carboxylic acid moiety. Citraconic Anhydride reacts with primary amines, such as those found in lysine residues, at pH 7-9. This modification is conveniently reversed at pH 3, rendering a citraconic acid by-product. and returning the amine to its original composition. Alternatively, this reversal can be facilitated in the presence of Hydroxylamine (CovaChem 11304-25).

    NHS-Biotin is a simple, amine reactive biotinylation reagent.

    N,O-bis(trimethylsilyl)trifluoroacetamide (BSTFA) is a versatile silylation reagent used to form stable TMS derivatives that are volatile. BSTFA is used to derivatize carboxylic acids, phenols, steroids, amines, alcohols, and alkaloids.
  • DCC (Dicyclohexylcarbodiimide)

    N,N''-Dicyclohexylcarbodiimide (DCC) is a zero length crosslinker. Dicyclohexylcarbodiimide is a coupling reagent used to couple carboxylic acids (COOH) to primary amines (-NH2).
  • DHB MALDI Matrix

    2,5-Dihydroxybenzoic acid (DHB) is a MALDI matrix used in the MALDI-MS of proteins, peptides, synthetic polymers, lipids and carbohydrates.
  • DMSO (Dimethylsulfoxide)

  • DST Crosslinker

    Disuccinimidyl tartrate (DST) is an amine reactive, water soluble, cleavable crosslinker. DST is a homobifunctional crosslinker that is reactive towards amines
  • EDC-HCL | EDAC-HCL | > 99%

    N-Ethyl-N'(3-dimethylaminopropyl)carbodiimide hydrochloride (EDC-HCl) is a zero length protein crosslinker. Also known as EDAC-HCl, this reagent is often used with either Sulfo-NHS (CovaChem 13505) or NHS (CovaChem 13504). EDC functions by activating the carboxyl region of the protein or other molecule, and coupling it to an amine or other nucleophilic functional group.
