SILAC Technical Services

Relying on a professional technical team and high-quality and efficient services, BOC Sciences provides stable isotope labeling with amino acids in cell culture (SILAC) services for cell culture amino acids, and can meet the needs of different isotope-labeled amino acids required for experiments.

Service Introduction

Stable isotope labeling with amino acids in cell culture (SILAC) technology is based on the principle that cell growth depends on essential amino acids, and uses stable isotope-labeled (13C, 15N, 2H) essential amino acids to metabolically label cellular proteins.

13C, 15N, 2H are stable isotopes without radioactivity, so they can be tested under normal conditions. Arginine, lysine, and leucine are the most commonly used amino acids in SILAC. Stable isotope-labeled arginine, lysine, and leucine were added to the cell culture medium to culture the cells. These stable isotope-labeled amino acids are naturally incorporated into proteins during cell proliferation. After 5-6 generations of cell proliferation, the stable isotope-labeled amino acid is completely incorporated into the newly synthesized protein of the cell to replace the original amino acid.

SILAC technology labels proteins through the cell's normal metabolic processes. The labeled protein differs in molecular weight from unlabeled protein (incubated in normal medium), but other chemical properties are the same. This difference is distinguished by means of subsequent mass spectrometry. Relative quantitative research was carried out by comparing the peak area of the signal peaks of unlabeled and isotope-labeled samples in the first-order mass spectrometry. At the same time, protein identification can also be carried out by secondary mass spectrometry.

Technical Features

  • In vivo labeling technology is closer to the real state of the sample.
  • The effect is stable, and the labeling efficiency is as high as 99%.
  • Incorporate markers during cell culture to reduce experimental errors.
  • Accurate quantification, and wide linear range.
  • Compared with chemical labeling, it has higher sensitivity and requires less protein.
  • Hundreds to thousands of proteins can be identified and quantified simultaneously.

Application Scopes

  • Drug target research
