Prenylation - Lipid Donors

Innovative lipid donors have been developed for sensitive prenylation assays. NBD-FPP and NBD-GPP are a well-established fluorescent analogs of the natural lipid donors.
B-GPP is the first universal lipid donor for all prenylatable proteins, providing versatile prenylation assays with femtomolar detection sensitivity.
