Targeting Tools: HRP-labeled Saporin

HRP-labeled Saporin Goat Polyclonal, Cat. #AB-15HRP HRP-labeled Anti-SAP can be used to verify binding specificity of a targeted toxin to a cell line expressing the target molecule. By first binding the targeted toxin to protein extract or plate-bound antigen, then binding HRP-labeled Anti-SAP to the targeted toxin, specificity can be confirmed through the use of …

Targeting Tools: Streptavidin-ZAP

Streptavidin-ZAP (Cat. #IT-27) Saporin conjugated to streptavidin is one of the most useful reagents that we have produced at ATS. It has been used in a wide variety of studies both in academic research and pharmaceutical/biotech labs. Workers are able to easily see if their molecule, that is biotinylated, is internalized by the target cells. …

Cover Article: The Biologically Active Cholecystokinin (26-33) peptide, [Tyr2-SO3]CCK-8, Retains High Affinity for CCK2 Receptors after Covalent Conjugation to Saporin

Contributed by Josephine Lai, Wenjun Zhang, Hamid Badghisi, Victor J. Hruby(1) and Frank Porreca, Departments of Pharmacology and Chemistry(1), The University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ 85724. Cholecystokinin (CCK) is widely distributed in the central nervous system and the gastrointestinal tract. The 33-amino acid peptide contains a carboxyl terminal octapeptide sequence Asp-Tyr-Met-Gly-Trp-Met-Asp-Phe-NH2 which confers the biological activity …
