Alkyne hydrazide bifunctional linker reagent is an adapter molecule which is useful to attach terminal alkyne group to a carbonyl group of aldehydes and ketones. Carbonyl groups are encountered in proteins subjected to oxidative stress. Many small natural molecules are also carbonyl compounds. Most saccharides, as well as RNAs contain 1,2-diol fragments which can be oxidized with periodate to aldehydes, which in turn react with hydrazides.
