  • Amine reactive NHS ester reacts rapidly with any primary amine containing molecule
  • Disulfide bond in the spacer arm is readily cleaved by 10-50 mM DTT or TCEP at pH 8.5
  • Spacer arm is also cleaved with 5% ?-mercaptoethanol in SDS-PAGE sample loading buffer at 100°C for 5 minutes
  • Cleavable crosslinker allows separation of crosslinked products
  • DSP crosslinker is membrane permeable, so intracellular crosslinking can be done
