Photocleavable biotin is a type of small molecule probe that is commonly used in biological research and diagnostics. It belongs to the family of cleavable biotin probes, which are designed to allow for the reversible capture and release of target molecules in complex biological samples.
Photocleavable biotin is composed of several functional groups, including a biotin group, a photocleavable linker, and a reactive group that can be used to attach the probe to a variety of biomolecules, such as proteins or nucleic acids. The photocleavable linker is designed to break apart when exposed to specific wavelengths of light, allowing the probe to be easily released from the target molecule.
One of the key advantages of using photocleavable biotin probes is that they allow for the non-destructive capture and release of target molecules in living cells or other complex biological samples. This makes them ideal for studying dynamic cellular processes and for the development of new diagnostic tools.
