LOW Density Aminoethyl 6% crosslinked beads allow covalent binding of agarose to carboxy group amino acids of the target ligand. This product is adequate to work in batch or column purifications (Low Pressure). This resin has a low content of aldehyde groups (15- 25 µm diaminoethyl / ml gel) providing a very good option to conjugate affinity ligands without distorting the target ligand. The backbone of the resin is 6% agarose beads and the pore size is adequate to work with enzymes & proteins mainly.
Aminoethyl resin give the biomolecules increased stability through the covalent bonds of the agarose to carboxy group amino acids of the target ligand, thus facilitating recovery and later reuse. This covalent binding also confers a qualitative advantage compared to resins activated with CNBr, in which the binding is weaker.
Biomolecules can be immobilized by binding them to a support under conditions that will then determine the characteristics of the complex. Immobilization is a technique that binds a ligand (enzyme, antibody, affinity proteins like Protein A or Protein G) to a support, giving high stability and making it easier to reuse the immobilized molecule.
The choice of Glyoxal or Aminoethyl will depend on the biomolecule to be immobilized, the accessibility of the reactive groups, and the direction/ orientation required for the binding to the support.
Aminoethyl 6% agarose beads are suitable for use with FPLC, but with pressures no more than 20 kPa. Too much pressure or too fast of a flow rate will result in diminished performance.
