For high-sensitivity detection of phosphorylated proteins

Phos-tag Mass Analytical Kit


Phos-tag Mass Analytical Kit is used by mixinged with MALDI-TOF/MS samples before use. Phos-tag - phosphorylated molecule complex is detected in a positive mode with high sensitivity, including phosphorylated molecules that are otherwise difficult to detect.


Detection of Phos-tag - Phosphorylated LPA Complex

LPA2- :1-oleoyl-L-α-lyzophosphatidate (MW: 434.2)

Increased positive charge improved the detection sensitivity for phosphorylated LPA.
