Trehalose, also known as mycose or tremalose, is a natural α-linked 1,1-Glucose disaccharide – lacking a reducing end and very resistant to acidic hydrolysis.
FITC-trehalose has an excitation maximum at 493 nm and an emission maximum at 520 nm.
Storage and stability
FITC-trehalose is stable for more than 6 years when stored dry in well-sealed containers at ambient temperature.
FITC-trehalose dissolves readily in water.
A number of application areas of trehalose are currently being explored, for example treatments of amyloidosis, depression and dry eyes. Read more about applications here.
