Pricing Availability   Qty
Cat.No. 6585 - L-Azidonorleucine hydrochloride | C6H12N4O2.HCl | CAS No. 1454334-76-9
Description: Unnatural amino acid for bio-orthogonal or fluorescent labeling of newly synthesized proteins
Chemical Name: (S)-2-Amino-6-azidohexanoic acid hydrochloride
Literature (1)

Biological Activity

Unnatural amino acid; surrogate methionine. Can be incorporated into proteins by a mutant methionyl tRNA synthetase to enable cell-type specific analysis of protein synthesis. For use with bio-orthogonal non-canonical amino-acid tagging (BONCAT) or fluorescent non-canonical amino acid tagging (FUNCAT). Labeling does not affect the normal localization of the labeled proteins.
