Application

Non-fluorescent reagent that reacts readily under mild conditions with primary amines in amino acids and peptides to form stable, highly fluorescent compounds. Low background due to hydrolysis. Useful for the fluorometric assay of amino acids, protein, and proteolytic enzymes. Effectively blocks newly generated amino termini in protein sequence analyses.

Here we report a fast and effective method to visualize interactive proteins across intact mammalian cells via on-site formation of fluorescence using instant reaction of non-fluorescent fluorescamine with primary amines on proteins. Without interference by fluorescence background, this fluorogenic labelling...
