General description

Maltoheptaose is a glucose heptamer.


A partial hydrolysis of maltoheptaose has been used to prepare a dextran ladder in a study that assessed cationic labeling of oligosaccharides. The sensitivity of O-2-[aminoethyl]fluorescein was evaluated using maltoheptaose in a study that investigated the development of a novel fluorescent tag for the electrophoretic separation of oligosaccharides.

Cationic derivatization of oligosaccharides by quaternary ammonium label was investigated for capillary electrophoretic separation with transient isotachophoretic preconcentration (t-ITP) as detected by capacitively coupled contactless conductivity detection (C4D). Dextran ladder, prepared by partial hydrolysis of dextran, isomaltotriose, maltopentaose and maltoheptaose...

The effects of varying the electron energy and cationizing agents on electron activated dissociation (ExD) of metal-adducted oligosaccharides were explored, using permethylated maltoheptaose as the model system. Across the examined range of electron energy, the metal-adducted oligosaccharide exhibited several fragmentation...
