Click-iT® LAA (linoleamide alkyne) for lipid peroxidation detection, when combined with copper-catalyzed click chemistry, enables the detection of lipid-peroxidation-derived protein modifications in fixed cells. Click-iT® detection reagents are not included with this product. For a complete kit, please see our Click-iT® Lipid Peroxidation Imaging Kit - Alexa Fluor® 488
.How It Works
Click-iT® LAA is incubated with cells, where it incorporates into cellular membranes. Upon lipid peroxidation, LAA is oxidized and produces 9- and 13- hydroperoxy-octadecadienoic acid (HPODE). These hydroperoxides decompose to multiple α,β-unsaturated aldehydes, which readily modify proteins at nucleophilic side chains. These alkyne-containing modified proteins can be subsequently detected using Click-iT® chemistry and multiplexed with other probes appropriate for fixed cells. This assay is amenable to detection by traditional fluorescence microscopy, high content screening (HCS), and flow cytometry.
Available in Two Formats
Click-iT® LAA (linoleamide alkyne) is a stand-alone reagent provided as a five pack set of single-use vials for maximum flexibility in assays for lipid peroxidation. This reagent will need to be combined with appropriate azide-modified detection reagents and other reagents in the Click-iT® tool box
. For a more complete kit, we offer the Click-iT® Lipid Peroxidation Imaging Kit - Alexa Fluor® 488
, which includes the components you need to detect lipid peroxidation in cells, including a positive control compound.
