Maleimide Activated Plates


Coat 96-well microplate wells with cysteine-terminated peptides.

Pierce Maleimide Activated Plates

Thermo Scientific Pierce Maleimide Activated Plates are ideal for binding sulfhydryl-containing molecules that are difficult to coat onto polystyrene plates, such as peptides that contain a terminal cysteine.

These coated plates are an especially useful tool for assessing specific anti-hapten antibody titers during antibody production. Maleimide Activated Plates are available in clear for colorimetric assays, white for chemiluminescent assays, and black for fluorescent assays.

Highlights:

  • Pre-blocked to reduce nonspecific binding
  • Convenient 8-well strip format
  • Easy (spontaneous) immobilization of peptides derivatized with a terminal cysteine and proteins with free sulfhydryl
  • Binding Capacity: 100 to 150pmol of a sulfhydryl-containing peptide (307 Da) per well
  • Activation Level: 100µL

Product Details:

Capturing and coating sulfhydryl peptides with maleimide-activated microplates
Reaction scheme for coupling peptides and other sulfhydryl-containing molecules.

Maleimides react with free sulfhydryl group(s) at pH of 6.5-7.5, forming stable thioether linkages. Reaction with amines becomes significant at pH > 7.5. Some sulfhydryl-containing peptides and proteins may oxidize in solution and form disulfide bonds, which cannot react with maleimides. Disulfide bonds can be reduced to produce free sulfhydryls. The TCEP Disulfide Reducing Gel enables peptide or protein reduction while recovering the sample in the absence of reducing agents. Sulfhydryls can be introduced via amine modification using N-succinimidyl S-acetylthioacetate (SATA) or 2-iminothiolane-HCl (Traut's Reagent).
