Tris (2-carboxyethyl) phosphine hydrochloride (TCEP, #C4706) is capable of selectively cleaving disulfide bonds.
TCEP is soluble in water at 50 mg/ml and is also stable under both acidic and basic pH conditions. For work in protein analysis and mass spectrometry, we also offer an already prepared version of TCEP in a buffered aqueous solution. Product# 646547 is 0.5M solution of TCEP in water, where the pH has been adjusted to 7 with ammonium hydroxide.
TCEP is a very effective disulfide reducing agent that is less toxic than beta-mercaptoethanol and more stable to solution oxidation and pH changes than dithiothreitol.
