Description

Application

N-(3-Dimethylaminopropyl)-N′-ethylcarbodiimide hydrochloride has been used for amine coupling reaction during self-assembly of the tethered bilayer lipid membrane. It has also been used for derivatizing antibody against COX5b to carboxylated polystyrene microspheres.

Biochem/physiol Actions

N-(3-Dimethylaminopropyl)-N′-ethylcarbodiimide is a water soluble condensing reagent. EDAC is generally utilized as a carboxyl activating agent for amide bonding with primary amines. Additionally, it reacts with phosphate groups. It has been utilized in peptide synthesis, crosslinking proteins to nucleic acids as well as preparation of immunoconjugates.

Water soluble condensing reagent. EDAC is generally utilized as a carboxyl activating agent for amide bonding with primary amines. In addition, it will react with phosphate groups. EDAC has been used in peptide synthesis; crosslinking proteins to nucleic acids; and preparation of immunoconjugates as examples. Typically, EDAC is utilized in the pH range 4.0-6.0 without buffers. In particular, amine and carboxylate buffers should be avoided.
