Product Description

IgG molecule contains a number of disulfide bonds. The disulfide bonds in the hinge region can be selectively reduced to generate a half antibody containing sulfhydryl groups. This procedure generates limited reactive sites for antibody labeling through thiol.

  • Chemistry: Sulfhydryl reaction with maleimide or alkyl halide containing compounds.
  • Product: Labeled half antibody containing single or few small molecules.
  • Procedure: After a buffer exchange (if necessary) disulfide reduction of IgG followed by desalting and labeling. After labeling, small molecule labeled half antibodies are purified by gel filtration chromatography. Finally concentration/labeling ratio determination.
  • Price: please contact us for a quote.
  • Note: For antibodies other than IgG extra charges may apply. Please check biopolymer and small molecule for ordering information.
