Epidermal Growth Factor, Fluorescein Conjugate (Fluorescein EGF)

Back to top


We offer several conjugates of epidermal growth factor that are useful for the detection of EGF receptor in cells. Fluorescently labeled EGF has enabled scientists to investigate receptor-membrane interactions, study receptor distribution, calculate rate constants for the interaction of EGF with its receptor, and more. The conjugates incorporating fluorescein (FITC), Oregon Green® 514, and tetramethylrhodamine were constructed with the dye directly attached to EGF. The conjugates of EGF with Alexa Fluor® dyes and Texas Red® dye are complexes of the dye–streptavidin molecule and biotinylated EGF. The biotinylated conjugates utilize biotin-XX, which contains a long spacer arm designed to enhance the probe’s affinity for the EGF receptor.

Epidermal Growth Factor Conjugate Specifications:
• EGF molecule: 53 amino acids, MW=6,045 Da
• Label (Ex/Em): Fluorescein (~494/518 nm)
• Number of fluorophore molecules on each EGF molecule: 1
• Fluorescence is typically monitored using a flow cytometer, fluorescence microscope, or fluorimeter
