CALIXAR used a novel & custom-produced method
CALIXAR’s FTAC6 is a very soft detergent used to stabilize native membrane proteins. FTAC6 is non-ionic and therefore not sensitive to ionic strength or pH variations is well adapted to stabilize many different specific membrane proteins. Due to the fluorinated chain, FTAC6 is poorly delipidating towards membrane proteins.
FTAC6 can improve the production of lipid detergents, mixed micelles, and protein detergent micelles. FTAC6 allows for the stabilization of native and functional membrane proteins in a solution.
FTAC6 is provided in powder form and will be used in an aqueous solution or buffer and can also be mixed within biological materials (biological membranes).
Native Full Length Proteins
CALIXAR’s FTAC6 is non-ionic and consequently not sensitive to ionic strength or pH fluctuations and is able to stabilize specific membrane proteins. Due to the fluorinated chain, FTAC6 does not solubilize lipid membranes.
Specifically Made for Biotech
CALIXAR’s FTAC6 is a high-quality detergent / reagent used for research and pharmaceutical discovery projects. CALIXAR's structural studies and are adapted for use in biotechnology companies, as well as for academic teams (biochemists, structural biologists, pharmacologists, virologists) involved in the life science fields.
