*FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY

  • Tool name: Glycated HSA Rhodamine Boronic Acid small molecule (tool compound)
  • Alternate name: AGEs
  • Research fields: Cancer;Cell biology
  • Primary target: Advanced Glycation Endproducts (AGE); specifically Glycated Human Serum Albumin (HSA). Also binds ApoA-I protein.
  • 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...
  • Additional notes: This small molecule has been used to identify glycated proteins in human serum, insect hemolymph, and mouse brain homogenates.
