Technical Data
11-dATP (Biotin) (Biotin-11-dATP)
Biochemicals Storage: -20°CShipping: Blue Ice
Biotin-11-dATP is enzymatically incorporated into DNA/cDNA as substitute for its natural counterpart dATP. The resulting Biotin-labeled DNA/cDNA probes are subsequently detected using streptavidin conjugated with horseradish peroxidase (HRP), alkaline phosphatase (AP), a fluorescent dye or agarose/magnetic beads. Optimal substrate properties and thus labeling efficiency as well as an efficient detection of the Biotin moiety is ensured by a 11-atom linker attached to the 7-Deaza position of adenine.
