ActiveHOOK™ KLH is maleimide activated by the addition of sulfoSMCC cross-linker. The ActiveHOOK™ KLH rapidly couples to free sulfhydryl groups on peptides and proteins. This activated carrier proteins save both time and money as separate cross-linkers are not required and the reaction is a one step reaction.
Keyhole limpet hemocyanin is a widely used carrier protein due to its large molecular mass (4.5x105-1.3x107Da aggregates) and large number of primary amines that can react with cross-linkers for the coupling of peptides.
ActiveHOOK™ KLH is available as a 10mg vial or as our OneQuant™ single use line as 8 x 2mg vials.
