Custom Peptide Modifications

Peptide Modification Online Quotation

The peptide modification services at GenScript offer a wide range of modifications to meet any research need. These modifications can improve overall peptide stability, alter structure to better understand biological function, or enhance immunogenicity for antibody development and production. In addition to a variety of terminus and internal modifications, GenScript's services include peptide labeling and conjugations for imaging and detection needs.

For a list of our available modifications, select the modification options below:

1. Amidation and Acetylation

If the peptide is from an internal sequence of a protein, terminal amidation (C-terminus) or acetylation (N-terminus) will remove its charge and help it imitate its natural structure (amide, CONH2). In addition, this modification makes the resulting peptide more stable towards enzymatic degradation resulting from exopeptidases.

2. Biotin and FITC

For C-terminal labeling of biotin, a Lys residue is added to the C-terminus of the peptide. Biotin is then attached to the lysine side chain via amide bond. The positive charge of the lysine is then removed.

Fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) is an activated precursor used for fluorescein labeling. For efficient N-terminal labeling, a seven-atom aminohexanoyl spacer (NH2-CH2-CH2-CH2-CH2-CH2-COOH) is inserted between the fluorophore (fluoroscein) and the N-terminus of the peptide.

3. Disulfide Bridge

Peptide cyclization can be achieved through creating disulfide bridges between cysteine residues on the peptide. This is a challenging practice for peptide containing multiple cysteine residues due to random formations of disulfide bridges between them. GenScript is able to build disulfide bridges between cysteine at specified positions. We are able to introduce up to three customized disulfide bridges on one peptide.

4. Phosphorylation

Phosphopeptides can assist in the investigation of the influences of phosphorylation on peptides and protein structure and in the understanding of regulatory processes mediated by protein kinases. GenScript has successfully synthesized numerous serine-, threonine-, and tyrosine-phosphopeptides. For peptides containing one or more of these hydroxy-amino acids, selective phosphorylation can be achieved by orthogonal protection or by Fmoc-protected phosphorylated amino acids.

Delivery Specifications

All peptide synthesis is subject to GenScript's stringent quality control. The typical delivery consists of lyophilized peptide of the required sequence, purity, and quantity and associated QC reports.
