Background info
Andracon® is a brand for high quality microbial transglutaminase:
• Recombinantly produced in E. coli
• Ultra-pure and highly active
• Batch to batch consistent quality
• License free
• Produced according to an SOP in an ISO9001:2015 certified environment
Andracon® (Microbial Transglutaminase, MTG) catalyzes the acyl transfer reaction between γ-carboxyamide groups of peptide-bound glutamine residues and a variety or primary amines.
Therefore, Andracon® can be used to attach primary-amine coupled functional markers like biotin, fluorescent dyes, click chemistry reagents or cytotoxins to proteins, e.g. antibodies.
Essentially, Andracon® is used for the production of antibody drug conjugates (ADCs).
