Light-triggered conversion of non-ionic into ionic surfactants: towards chameleon detergents for 2-D gel electrophoresis

Author affiliations

Abstract

Caged non-ionic detergents, comprised of polar oligo(ethylene glycol) and non-polar alkyl chains joined by a photocleavable ortho-nitrobenzyl sulfonate linker have been synthesized and characterized. The light-triggered transformation of such chameleon surfactant from a charge-neutral into a charged form offers great potential to improve 2-D gel electrophoretic separation of complex protein mixtures.
