Descrition & Target

APTS is a very useful green fluorescent dye for labeling glycoproteins or sugar molecules in general. The labeling occurs via reductive amination which involves the formation of a Schiff base between the amine of APTS and the aldehyde or ketone of the sugar, followed by the reduction of the Schiff base linkage to a stable carbon-nitrogen bond. The multi-anionic nature of the dye makes it ideal for the studies of carbohydrate molecules by high resolution capillary electrophoresis. <ul> <li>&lamba; <sub>Ex</sub>/&lamba; <sub>Em</sub>: 424/505 nm (before conjugation)</li> <li>Yellow solid soluble in water</li> <li>Store at 4°C and protect from light.</li> <li>C<sub>16</sub>H<sub>8</sub>Na<sub>3</sub>O<sub>9</sub>S<sub>3</sub></li> <li>MW: 523.39</li> <li>[196504-57-1]</li> </ul>
