EZ-Link™ Micro Sulfo-NHS-LC-Biotinylation Kit (Thermo Scientific™)

The Thermo Scientific EZ-Link Sulfo-NHS-LC-Biotinylation Kit contains reagents sufficient for 8 biotinylation reactions (e.g., 0.05–0.2 mg antibody per reaction). The EZ-Link Sulfo-NHS-LC-Biotin reagent included in the kit is an intermediate-length, water-soluble biotinylation reagent for labeling antibodies, proteins, and other molecules that have primary amines.

Features of EZ-Link Sulfo-NHS-LC-Biotin:

Protein labeling—biotinylate antibodies to facilitate immobilization, purification or detection using streptavidin resins or probes
Cell surface labeling—biotinylates only surface proteins of whole cells because the negatively charged reagent does not permeate cell membranes
Amine-reactive—reacts with primary amines (-NH2), such as lysine side-chains, or the amino-termini of polypeptides
Soluble—charged sulfo-NHS group increases reagent water solubility compared to ordinary NHS-ester compounds
Irreversible—forms permanent amide bonds; spacer arm cannot be cleaved
Medium length—spacer arm (total length added to target) is 22.4 angstroms; provides excellent balance between adequate length (minimal steric hindrance for biotin binding) and modest mass

Sulfo-NHS-LC-Biotin is one of three very similar EZ-Link Reagents that are water-soluble, non-cleavable, and enable simple and efficient biotinylation of antibodies, proteins and any other primary amine-containing macromolecules in solution. Specific labeling of cell surface proteins is another common application for these uniquely water-soluble and membrane impermeable reagents. Differing only in their spacer arm lengths, the three Sulfo-NHS-ester reagents offer the possibility of optimizing labeling and detection experiments where steric hindrance of biotin binding is an important factor. Sulfo-NHS-LC-Biotin is offered in several package sizes and as complete protein labeling kits.

We manufacture biotin reagents to ensure the highest possible overall product integrity, consistency, and performance for the intended research applications.

N-Hydroxysulfosuccinimide (NHS) esters of biotin are the most popular type of biotinylation reagent. NHS-activated biotins react efficiently with primary amino groups (-NH2) in alkaline buffers to form stable amide bonds. Proteins (e.g., antibodies) typically have several primary amines that are available as targets for labeling, including the side chain of lysine (K) residues and the N-terminus of each polypeptide.

Varieties of biotin NHS-ester reagents differ in length, solubility, cell permeability and cleavability. Non-sulfonated NHS-biotins are cell permeable but must be dissolved in organic solvent such as DMSO or DMF. Sulfo-NHS biotins (and those with pegylated spacers) are directly water soluble but not membrane permeable. Varieties containing disulfide bonds can be cleaved using reducing agents, enabling the biotin group to be disconnected from the labeled protein.

Pierce™ Fluorescence Biotin Quantitation Kit (Thermo Scientific™)

Thermo Scientific Pierce Fluorescence Biotin Quantitation Kit requires only ten microliters of sample to accurately measure the biotinylation level of labeled antibodies and other biomolecules.

Features of the Fluorescence Biotin Quantitation Kit:

Fast—requires only 5 minute incubation
Economical—requires only 10 µL of sample (approx. 750ng of biotinylated IgG)
Sensitive—linear working range of 10 to 60 picomoles of biotin

This microplate-based biotin assay is easy to perform by adding the supplied fluorescent reporter to the biotinylated samples and diluted biocytin standards. The avidin fluoresces when the weakly interacting HABA (4'-hydroxyazobenzene-2-carboxylic acid) is displaced by the biotin. The amount of biotin is determined by comparing the sample's fluorescence to the biocytin standard curve. This assay requires must less sample volume than the microplate colorimetric HABA assay and is much more sensitive.

Includes
Assay buffer, HABA-avidin fluorescent reporter solution, and biocytin control

Requires
Black opaque 96-well microplate and a fluorescence plate reader (excitation 494 nm; emission 520 nm)

The highly specific interaction of avidin or streptavidin with biotin is the basis for many purification and detection systems. Quantifying the degree of biotinylation is necessary for assessing if a biotin-labeling procedure was successful and what amount of biotinylated molecule to use for a specific application.

HABA (4'-hydroxyazobenzene-2-carboxylic acid) is a dye that weakly interacts with avidin and is commonly used in a colorimetric assay to quickly estimate the biotin-to-protein ratio. The Fluorescence Biotin Quantitation Kit also uses HABA dye but is more sensitive and accurate. A premix of fluorescent avidin with HABA (DyLight Reporter) is added to the solution containing the biotinylated sample. Because of its higher affinity for avidin, biotin displaces the HABA, allowing the avidin to fluoresce. The amount of biotin is measured in a microplate by comparing the fluorescence to a biocytin standard curve.

The Fluorescence Biotin Quantitation Kit is requires only 10 µL of sample. By contrast, the traditional colorimetric method requires 100 µL of sample, and another leading supplier's fluorescent assay kit requires 50 µL of sample. Our kit is more accurate than the other supplier's fluorescent biotin assay (Brand I).

EZ-Link™ NHS-PEG4 Biotinylation Kit (Thermo Scientific™)

The Thermo Scientific EZ-Link NHS-PEG4 Biotinylation Kit contains EZ-Link NHS-PEG4-Biotin and accessory reagents required for 8 1–10 mg protein labeling reactions. EZ-Link NHS-PEG4-Biotin is a pegylated, water-soluble reagent for simple and efficient biotin labeling of antibodies, proteins and other primary amine-containing macromolecules.

Features of EZ-Link NHS-PEG4-Biotin:

Protein labeling—biotinylate antibodies or other proteins for detection or purification using streptavidin probes or resins
Amine-reactive—reacts with primary amines (-NH2), such as the side-chain of lysines (K) or the amino-termini of polypeptides
Pegylated – spacer arm contains a hydrophilic, 4-unit, polyethylene glycol (PEG) group
Enhances solubility – pegylation imparts water solubility to the biotinylated molecule, helping to prevent aggregation of biotinylated antibodies stored in solution
Irreversible—forms permanent amide bonds; spacer arm cannot be cleaved
Long reach – spacer arm (total length added to target) is 29 angstroms; this reduces steric hindrance when binding to avidin molecules

NHS-PEG4-Biotin is a long (29.0Å), pegylated, water-soluble, NHS-ester biotinylation reagent to label amines and maximize solubility of antibodies and other proteins. The N-hydroxysuccinimide ester (NHS) group reacts specifically and efficiently with lysine and N-terminal amino groups to form stable amide bonds. The hydrophilic polyethylene glycol (PEG) spacer arm imparts water solubility that is transferred to the biotinylated molecule, thus reducing aggregation of labeled proteins stored in solution. The PEG spacer arm also gives the reagent a long and flexible connection to minimize steric hindrance for binding to avidin molecules.

Click-IT™ Fucose Alkyne (Invitrogen™)

Identify and characterize fucosylated proteins with Click-iT® fucose alkyne using the powerful click chemistry, a simple and robust two-step labeling and detection technique. In step one, the alkyne-containing biomolecule is fed to cells or animals and actively incorporated into proteins. Unlike other labels such as biotin or a fluorescent dye, the alkyne-tag is small enough that the tagged molecule is an acceptable substrate for the enzymes that incorporate this building block into proteins. Detection utilizes the chemoselective ligation or “click" reaction between an azide and an alkyne where the modified protein is detected with the corresponding azide-containing dye or hapten using either the Click-iT® Cell Reaction Buffer Kit or the Click-iT® Protein Buffer Kit. With the Click-iT® Cell Reaction Buffer Kit, cells can be analyzed by fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry or high-content imaging and analysis (HCS) together with other biomarkers of interest for content and context rich results. With the Click-iT® Protein Reaction Buffer Kit, achieve detection sensitivity in 1-D gels and western blots in the low femtomole range or perform LC-MS⁄MS and MALDI MS analysis.

Click-IT™ Alexa Fluor™ 594 DIBO Alkyne, for copper free click chemistry detection of azide (Invitrogen™)

The Thermo Scientific EZ-Link Sulfo NHS-SS Biotinylation Kit contains sufficient reagents for 8 biotinylation reactions (e.g., 0.05–0.2 mg antibody per reaction). The EZ-Link Sulfo-NHS-SS-Biotin included in the kit is a water-soluble, NHS-ester biotinylation reagent whose spacer arm includes a cleavable disulfide bond for reversible labeling of proteins and cell surface primary amines.

Features of EZ-Link Sulfo-NHS-SS-Biotin:

Protein labeling – biotinylate antibodies to facilitate immobilization, purification or detection
Cell surface labeling – biotinylates only surface proteins of whole cells because the negatively charged reagent does not permeate cell membranes
Amine-reactive—reacts with primary amines (-NH2), such as lysine side-chains, or the amino-termini of polypeptides
Cleavable—disulfide bond in spacer arm allows the biotin label to be removed using reducing agents such as DTT; only a small sulfhydryl group remains attached to the molecule
Soluble – charged sulfo-NHS group increases reagent water solubility compared to ordinary NHS-ester compounds
Medium length—spacer arm (total length added to target) is 24.3 angstroms; it consists of the native biotin valeric acid group extended by a 7-atom chain

Sulfo-NHS-SS-Biotin is a thiol-cleavable amine-reactive biotinylation reagent that contains an extended spacer arm to reduce steric hindrances associated with avidin binding. This reagent is water-soluble, enabling biotinylation to be performed in the absence of organic solvents such as DMSO or DMF for applications that cannot tolerate solvents or are complicated by their inclusion. The compound is particularly useful for labeling and purifying cell surface proteins, because (a) its sulfonate group prevents it from permeating cell membranes and (b) its cleavable spacer arm enables initially biotinylated proteins to be released from streptavidin affinity columns.

We manufacture biotin reagents to ensure the highest possible overall product integrity, consistency, and performance for the intended research applications.
