ACP/MCP Companion

Having no cysteines, the ACP-tag and the MCP-tag are particularly suited for specifically labeling cell-surface proteins, and should be useful for labeling secreted proteins with disulfide bridges such as antibodies. Additionally, the CoA biotin substrate, a non-cell permeable substrate based on biotin with an amidocaproyl linker, is suitable for applications such as biotinylation of ACP-tag or MAC-tag fusion proteins in living cells for detection with streptavidin fluorophore conjugates or labeling in solution for analysis by SDS-PAGE/Western Blot or for capture with streptavidin for binding and interaction studies.
