Water-soluble, long-chained, biotin-containing hydrazide, used for the selective detection of glycoconjugates.

Biocytin hydrazide is an aldehyde-fixable cellular tracer that can be introduced into cells by microinjection. Biocytin hydrazide can also be used to label glycoproteins or other carbohydrate molecules. Biocytin hydrazide is a selective label for sialic acids, galactose, and other sugars in glycoconjugates using avidin-biotin technology. Can also be used to biotin label peptides and proteins. Biocytin hydrazide contains an extra linking arm allowing for easier binding to avidin or streptavidin in ELISA type applications.
