Iodine Labeling Reagents for Proteins
Tyrosine addition compounds and tyrosyl activation vessels that replace chloramine T oxidation reagents to efficiently label proteins and other molecules with radioactive iodine (usually 125I), a process called iodination, for use as tracers and probes.
Iodination has been replaced by other labeling techniques for many research applications. However, when it is still necessary, it's comforting to know you can obtain the essential reagents from us.
Label Transfer Protein Interaction Analysis »
Thermo Scientific* Pierce Iodination Beads are 3mm diameter polystyrene beads that are coated with an oxidizing reagent, which provides efficient activation of iodine-125 for protein or peptide iodination procedures.
Thermo Scientific* Pierce Iodination Reagent is 1,3,4,6-tetrachloro-3a,6a-diphenyl-glycoluril, an oxidizing agent that efficiently activates iodine for spontaneous incorporation into protein tyrosyl groups.
Thermo Scientific* Pierce Iodination Tubes are 12 x 75mm glass test tubes that are pre-coated at the bottom with Pierce Iodination Reagent, which activates of iodine-125 for protein or peptide iodination procedures.
Thermo Scientific* Pierce Sulfo-SHPP (water-soluble Bolton-Hunter Reagent) conjugates tyrosine-like functional groups to primary amines to increase the number of tyrosyl groups that can be iodinated by iodine-125 labeling procedures.
