Fluorescent Dyes  >  Reactive Fluorescent Dyes  >>  Tetramethylrhodamine-5-(and-6)-maleimide

Product Name Tetramethylrhodamine - 5 - (and - 6) - maleimide
Size 25 mg
Catalog # AS-81444
US$ $247

Maleimides are among the most frequently used reagents for thiol modification. In most proteins, the sites of reactions are at cysteine residues that either are intrinsically present or result from reduction of cystines. Unlike iodoacetamides, maleimides do not react with histidines and methionines under physiological conditions. Tetramethylrhodamine-5-(and-6)-maleimide is an excellent reagent for thiol modifications of peptides, nucleotides, nucleic acids and proteins.
