Contributor Information

  • Name Marta P. Pereira Morais
  • Institute University of Bath

Tool Details

  • Tool name: Glycated HSA Rhodamine Boronic Acid small molecule (tool compound)
  • Alternate names: AGEs
  • Tool type: Small molecules
  • Description: Protein glycation, also known as non-enzymatic glycosylation, has been implicated in various disease states and is therefore an important biomarker for ageing and age-related chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, autoimmune diseases, cancer, and Alzheimer's disease. However their analysis is challenging due to the complexity of the protein-carbohydrate adducts. Fluorescent boronic acids like these enable the detection and identification of individual glycated proteins in complex samples through gel electrophoresis.
  • Research area: Cancer; Cell Type or Organelle Marker; Fluorescent Cell Imaging
  • Additional notes: This small molecule has been used to identify glycated proteins in human serum, insect hemolymph, and mouse brain homogenates.

  • For Research Use Only
