NHS-LC-Biotin, Succinimidyl 6-(biotinamido)hexanoate, is an amino-reactive biotinylation reagent with a long spacer arm. The 6-atom spacer arm of NHS-LC-Biotin provides distance between the biotin and the target ligand which helps alleviate steric hindrance. NHS-LC-Biotin is used to biotinylate proteins, peptides, or amino acids by reacting with primary amines as found in the N-terminus and Lysine side chains. The NHS-LC-Biotin molecule is cell membrane permeable and can be used to label intracellular proteins; whereas Sulfo-NHS-LC-Biotin is designed to biotinylate extracellular proteins. The resulting biotinylated protein can then be detected when used in conjunction with streptavidin and Immobilized Streptavidin.
