β-Glucosyl Yariv reagent CAS 58130-67-9
The β-glucosyl Yariv reagent is a synthetic phenyl glycoside that specifically binds to and precipitates plant arabinogalactan proteins (AGPs). This Yariv reagent can be used as histological probe to localise the sub-cellular distribution of AGPs1 and to visualise AGPs after electrophoresis.2 In addition, binding of β-glucosyl Yariv reagent can also disrupt the normal function of AGPs and provide a system to study their function.3
