Inverse electron demand Diels-Alder reaction (ied-DA) with tetrazines is a promising tool for the conjugation of biomolecules. The reaction takes place between tetrazine as an electron acceptor heterodiene, and a strained dienophile, such as trans-cyclooctene, cyclopropene, or some cyclooctynes.
Methyltetrazine provides greater stability in buffers than unsubstituted tetrazine. The rate of its reaction with cycloalkenes still beats almost all other conjugation reaction rates by a factor of magnitudes.
BDP FL is a bright dye for fluorescein (FAM) channel. Using BDP FL tetrazine, the dye can be conjugated with molecules bearing strained olefins.
