Amphipol A8-35

(C6.2H10.3O1.35N0.65N0.35)~ 35 Mr ca. 8 kDa

Amphipathic surfactant for maintaining solubilized membrane proteins in detergent-free solutions.
Amphipols are a non-detergent alternative for stabilizing membrane proteins in aqueous solutions. Extracted membrane proteins can be exchanged into these amphipathic polymers, keeping them soluble in detergent-free, aqueous solution while stabilizing them biochemically.
Solubility: up to 20 % in water
