DST (Disuccinimidyl tartrate) is a homobifunctional, cleavable, primary amine-reactive crosslinking reagent. DST protein crosslinker has a cis-diol that is cleaved with 15 mM Sodium meta-Periodate. The DST crosslinking reagent contains two N-hydroxysuccimide (NHS) ester groups and is reactive toward primary amines (amino groups), such as those found on lysine and the N-terminus. DST crosslinker is an excellent choice for applications requiring crosslink cleavability without disturbing protein disulfide bonds with reducing reagents. DST crosslinking reagent can be dissolved in an aqueous reaction.
