DBCO-NHS Ester, also known as ADIBO-NHS Ester or DIBAC-NHS Ester, is an amine-reactive building block used for modification of amine-containing molecule in organic media. It reacts with primary amines (e.g., side chain of lysine residues or aminosilane-coated surfaces) at neutral or slightly basic pH to form covalent bonds. Short spacer arm adds minimal mass to modified molecules (228.3 daltons).
This product is not recommended for labeling of proteins or any other biopolymers in aqueous buffers due to poor aqueous solubility.
