Bioconjugation

Blog Post created by Amy Winfiled on Jun 19, 2016

Bioconjugation is the process of joining of biomolecules to other biomolecules, small molecules, and polymers by chemical or biological means to form a novel complex having the combined properties of its individual components. Compounds, natural or synthetic, with their individual activities, can be chemically combined together to create unique characteristics. Modified biomolecules may have diverse utilizations, for example, tracking cellular reacts, revealing enzyme functions, determining protein distributions, imaging specific biomarkers, and delivering drugs to targeted cells.

BOC Sciences offers personalized solutions for the conjugation of small molecules such as drugs, metabolites, and labeled compounds with synthetic or natural compounds for specific applications.

Bioconjugation reactions we can do:

1. Reactions of lysine residues

2. Reactions of cysteine residues

3. Reactions of cysteine residues

4. Reactions of N- and C- termini

5. Bioorthogonal reactions

6. Other types of reactions

In additional to the reactions, bioconjugation reagents, including fluorophores, enzymes, biotins, PEG derivations, are readily available to serve our customer. With our experience and expertise in the field of bioconjugation, we can offer valuable services to assist your development of diagnostics, bioassays and also drug formulations.
