The stain uses an enhanced Periodic Acid-Schiff (PAS) method for detection of glycoprotein sugars. The supplied agent first oxidises the cis-diol sugar groups to aldehydes. The aldehyde groups react with the sensitive glycoprotein stain solution forming Schiff bonds and producing strong magenta colour bands. RAPIDstain™ can be used after glycoprotein staining to detect non-glycosylated proteins and the use of the stain enhances glycoprotein staining. The glycoprotein stainis highly convenient as all the key reagents required for staining are supplied and a unique positive & negative control is included.
- Specific glycosylated protein staining with optional non-glycosylated protein staining
- Two stains in one kit
- Nanogram level sensitivity
- Stable periodate/Schiff staining
Suitable for the highly sensitive detection of glycoproteins following gel electrophoresis or protein transfer to nitrocellulose membranes.
Información de suministro: Supplied with RAPIDstain™, an enhanced Coomassie stain.
