CaptureSelect™ Alexa Fluor™ 488 Anti-C-tag Conjugate consists of a 13 kDa camelid antibody fragment (affinity ligand) with high affinity and selectivity for the 4-amino-acid 'C-tag' peptide tag E‑P‑E‑A (glutamic acid-proline-glutamic acid-alanine). The anti-C-tag affinity ligand recognizes the E-P-E-A peptide when this tag is fused directly to the C-terminus of a protein. The affinity ligand—constructed as a mono-specific bihead—is chemically conjugated to Alexa Fluor 488 via an appropriate spacer that retains the binding reactivity of the ligand.
Applications for CaptureSelect Alexa Fluor488 Anti-C-tag Conjugate include detection of C-tag fusion proteins or imaging and flow cytometry when the C-tag is expressed and displayed by cells.
