Dextran, Maleimide Functional
Maleimide functionalized Dextrans are one of Nanocs' thiol reactive dextran conjugates that can react with free sulfhydryl group (thiol) with high effiency. Maleimide functional Dextrans can react with thiolated antibodies, proteins, peptides or small molecules at pH 6.5-7.5 in aqueous buffer quickly and specifically. Nanocs provides a number of maleimide conjugated dextran products with molecular weight ranging from 3,000 Da to 2,000 kDa. These maleimide functional dextrans were purified by size chromatography to remove non-conjugated molecules and ensure adequate bioconjugation applications.
Dextrans are naturally synthesized polysaccharides with good water solubility, low toxicity and varied molecular weights. Dextrans modified with dyes and other biomolecules have been successfully used as long-term tracers for live cells. Nanocs also provides customerized dextran products for your special needs.
