FITC-trehalose

FITC -trehalose

FITC-Trehalose (Fluorescein isothiocyanate trehalose) is a fluorescent derivative of trehalose. In nature, trehalose can be found in animals, plants, and microorganisms. The trehalose is then broken down into glucose by the catabolic enzyme trehalase. FITC-trehalose has a molecular weight of 731.7 Da. All batches are checked for molecular weight, degree of substitution, loss on drying and free FITC. FITC-DEAE-trehalose is supplied as a yellow powder.

Structure
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.

Spectral data
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.

Solubility
FITC-trehalose dissolves readily in water.

Application
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.
