Shipping: shipped on blue ice

Storage Conditions: store at -20 °C
Short term exposure (up to 1 week cumulative) to ambient temperature possible.

Shelf Life: 12 months after date of delivery

Molecular Formula: C15H23N5O16P2

Molecular Weight: 591.32 g/mol

Purity: ≥ 98 % (HPLC)

Form: white to off-white solid

Solubility: water, aqueous buffer such as PBS

Applications:
Glycosylation of 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) with T4 ß-Glycosyltransferase (T4 ß-GT)[1-3]
The resulting azide-functionalized, glycosylated 5-hmC moiety can subsequently be detected via Cu(I)-free click chemistry that offers the choice

  • to introduce a (Desthio)Biotin group for subsequent purification tasks (via DBCO-containing (Desthio)Biotin)
  • to introduce fluorescent group for subsequent microscopic imaging (via DBCO-containing fluorescent dyes)
0.5 mg UDP-6-azide-glucose are sufficient to prepare 283 μl of a 3 mM solution.
