Echelon now offers the follwing Hyalose products:
Biotinylated Select-HA™ is the biotin version of the Select-HA™ which allows the researcher to immobilize or detect the Select-HA™ through the avidin-biotin interactions. A single biotin is conjugated at the reducing-end of each Select-HA™ molecule which results in a more homogeneous conjugate compared with biotinylation of the HA carboxyl groups which is variable in both loading and conjugate locations. In addition, the reducing-end conjugation provides advantage over the HA carboxyl group biotinylation by not masking the HA functional groups and allowing access to the entire HA polymers.
Select-HA™ Ladder contains five different molecular weights of Select-HA™ that can be used as size markers for agarose gel determination of HA sizes in samples. The Select-HA™ LoLadder contains HA markers range from 30 kDa to 500 kDa while the Select-HA™ HiLadder contains HA markers range from 500 kDa to 1500 kDa. In addition, we also offer the Select-HA™ MegaLadder which covers the high molecular weight HA from 2 MDa to 8 MDa. Together, the Select-HA™ Ladder provides a quick and simple method to determine HA sizes using agarose electrophoresis.
nanoHA™ is a HA oligomer prepared by chemoenzymatic synthesis with immobilized enzyme reactors2. The reducing-end is N-acetylglucosamine. nanoHA™ allows researcher to study the minimal HA disaccharides units that are needed for its potential binding partners.
