Bioconjugate Techniques, 3rd Edition, is the fundamental advisor to the amendment and go linking of biomolecules to be used in learn, diagnostics, and therapeutics. It offers hugely precise info at the chemistry, reagent structures, and functional purposes for developing classified or conjugate molecules. It additionally describes dozens of reactions, with information on hundreds and hundreds of commercially on hand reagents and using those reagents for editing or crosslinking peptides and proteins, sugars and polysaccharides, nucleic acids and oligonucleotides, lipids, and artificial polymers.

BIOCONJUGATE TECHNIQUES 38 1. Introduction to Bioconjugation Fluorescently Labeled Antibodies and Streptavidin Perhaps the most common bioconjugate used for cellular imaging is a fluorescently labeled antibody. Fluorescence microscopy has become a standard technique for studying cell biology, and the use of fluor– antibody bioconjugates is an essential tool in this process. Fluorescence detection and the reagents associated with this technique are discussed in Chapter 10. 38). A bright fluorescent label conjugated with a highly specific targeting agent, such as an antibody, can yield pertinent information on the biological state of a cell, including expression levels, post-translational modifications on proteins, cellular trafficking (translocation), morphology, and phenotype.
In this reaction, SMCC couples with the amines on the antibody to create amide bonds while the other end of the crosslinker creates thiol reactive sites on the molecule, thus producing terminal maleimide groups sticking out from the surface of the protein (Chapter 20). 34) and potentially creating sites for nonspecific interactions. In a secondary reaction, the enzyme molecule typically is modified with an aliphatic thiolation reagent prior to crosslinking with the SMCC-activated antibody. 1) form aliphatic protrusions on the surface of the enzyme to create thiols just as the SMCC modifications made on the antibody create thiol-reactive groups.
Unlike in a heterogeneous assay system, this method involves the mixing of sample and detection reagents together in a single reaction solution and the assay result is obtained without any separation steps being done. With heterogeneous assays, the detection conjugate is bound to its target analyte on an insoluble solid phase support and any excess reagent is removed before a measurement is taken. This removes any nonspecific signal due to unbound conjugate and isolates on the solid phase only the specific signal due to the detection conjugate being bound to the target analyte.
