cat. no. E3650

Complete kit with all required core components for aptamer in vitro evolution and selection. Contains all components from both, XELEX selection and analysis units, respectively.

Aptamers are single stranded DNA or RNA molecules with sequence-dependent three-dimensional structures. These structures allow distinct molecules to bind to target structures with high specificity and affinity by non-covalent molecular interactions. With respect to certain features aptamers resemble - and, in several applications, are used as a replacement for - antibodies. Aptamer selection against a broad range of target structures is possible, including proteins, polysaccharides, various large and small organic molecules (drug compounds) and even small metal ions.
