Tricine Usage And Synthesis
  • DescriptioinTricine is a zwitterionic amino acid. It is a white crystalline powder. It was first prepared by Good to buffer chloroplast reaction.1 Tricine is a commonly used electrophoresis buffer and is also used in resuspension of cell pellets.1,2 Attributing to its higher negative charge than glycine, it can migrate faster. At the same time, its high ionic strength results in more ion movement and less protein movement. Therefore, it works as a buffer component for separation of low molecular weight peptides.3
