Hapten-labeled nucleotide analogs for enzymatic incorporation, for indirect detection.
Biotin labeled dideoxycytosine triphosphate (ddCTP) is biologically active and can be incorporated with a variety of DNA polymerases including Taq, Klenow fragment, and Sequenase™. It terminates further incorporation and enables identification of the complementary base for applications like DNA sequencing and detection of point mutations. Biotin-labeled products may be detected with streptavidin conjugates. For the highest sensitivity in detection, we recommend using a streptavidin-HRP conjugate with tyramide signal amplification (TSA).
The number “11” in the compound name refers to the length of the linker arm between ddCTP and the label.
