Thiol reactive crosslinker PN10214, one of Quanta BioDesign's most popular PEGylation reagents, has a thiol reactive maleimide group on one end and an amine reactive NHS ester on the other end of a tetraethylene glycol linker.

Thiol Reactive Crosslinkers for Bioconjugation

Thiol reactive crosslinkers are one of the most common classes of crosslinkers in bioconjugation (1). Because most proteins contain far more free amines than thiols and disulfides, conjugation to a thiol allows for greater control of the conjugation. Even more control of the conjugation process is afforded if a thiol reactive compound is combined with an amine reactive compound to create a heterobifunctional crosslinker. Continue reading
