Phytochelatin Peptides - The World's Leading Provider

Because the availability of plant-related catalog peptides has traditionally been minimal to non-existent, the only way to obtain synthetic plant peptides has been through a significant investment in custom peptide services. Until now.

Recognizing the growing need for premium quality, on demand peptide solutions, AnaSpec is pleased to introduce a series of research-ready plant peptides called phytochelatins. With one of the largest collections of catalog peptides on the planet, AnaSpec is the world’s leading provider of catalog phytochelatin peptides.

Phytochelatins (PCs), a name coined by E. Grill et al.1 belong to a class of heavy metal-detoxifying peptides. These glutathione derived peptides chelate heavy metals such as Cd, Zn, Cu and Pb and have a general formula of (gamma-Glu-Cys)n-Gly, where n = 2-11. Repeating units is dependent on the concentration and duration of metal exposure.2, 3

AnaSpec currently offers Phytochelatins PC2 through PC6. By leveraging its synergistic detection technologies, AnaSpec also offers Biotinylated PC2 to PC4. Phytochelatins labeled with HiLyte™ Fluor 488 (Abs/Em = 498/525 nm) and other phytochelatin isomers will be available soon. Contact for an update on these products.
