CALIXAR uses proprietary technology & custom-built approaches
CALIXAR’s FTAC8 is a rather mild detergent utilized to stabilize native membrane proteins. FTAC8 is non-ionic and therefore not susceptible to ionic strength fluctuations or pH variations. They are also well suited to stabilize many different particular membrane proteins. Due to the fluorinated chain, FTAC8 is poorly delipidating towards membrane proteins.
FTAC8 helps generate lipid detergent mixed micelles and protein detergent micelles. FTAC8 also allows for the stabilization of native and functional membrane proteins. It is also used as a protein chaperone to inject membrane proteins into liposomes.
CALIXAR’s FTAC8 is provided in powder form and is generally used in an aqueous solution or buffer. It can also be mixed within biological materials (biological membranes).
Native Full-Length Proteins
CALIXAR’s FTAC8 is non-ionic detergent and therefore is not susceptible to ionic strength variations or pH fluctuations. It is also able to stabilize specific membrane proteins due to the fluorinated chain. FTAC8 does not solubilize the lipid membrane.
Specifically Made for Biotech
CALIXAR’s FTAC8 is a leading-quality detergent / reagent principally used in research and drug discovery projects. CALIXAR's structural studies and are adapted for use in pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, as well as for life science academic teams (biochemists, structural biologists, virologists, pharmacologists).
