Specifically modified amino acids in peptides open up a wide range of ligation reactions. Orthogonal and biocompatible reactions render various methods of modification and labeling possible. Ligations of peptides to proteins as well as coating of surfaces or nanoparticles are applications of those techniques. Furthermore, such peptide fragments are used to construct proteins not accessible by standard peptide synthesis or recombinant expression.
Click chemistry and Native Chemical Ligation are the most prominent of the ligations reactions. BIOSYNTAN offers peptides that contain all necessary components for your ligation reaction. You can chose from a large set of special amino acids that introduce such functional groups into your peptide.
