Technical Data
11-CTP (Biotin) (g-[N-(Biotin-6-amino-hexanoyl)]-5-propargylamino-cytidine-5-triphosphate, Triethylammonium Salt)
Biochemicals Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
11-CTP (Biotin) (Biotin-11-cytidine-5-triphosphate) can replace CTP for in vitro transcription reaction catalyzed by T3, T7 or SP6 RNA polymerases. The biotin-labeled RNA transcripts produced by these reactions are suitable for a wide range of applications such as nucleic acid hybridization, sequencing, and genome analysis. The transcription reaction produces multiple RNA copies of the DNA template(s) during a short incubation period. RNA probes offer higher target specificity and greater sensitivity than the corresponding DNA-DNA hybrids.

Suitable for use in Microarray based hybridization detection and Ribonuclease protection assay
Other applications have not been tested.
