General description

Fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) is widely used to attach a fluorescent label to proteins via the amine group. The isothiocyanate group reacts with amino terminal and primary amines in proteins. It has been used for the labeling of proteins including antibodies and lectins.

Application

Fluorescein isothiocyanate isomer I has been used for the staining of conidia.
Reagent for the FITC labeling of proteins; Microsequencing of proteins and peptides (HPLC)

Packaging

This work describes the derivatization of dextran using N-(tert-butyloxycarbonyl)-S-(trityl)-L-cysteine in the presence of N,N'-carbonyldiimidazole (CDI) as a coupling agent. Homogeneous reactions in dimethyl sulfoxide allowed for an efficient coupling of the amino acid derivative to the polymer backbone. Derivatization was...
