The thiol group of Hcy allows it to form a disulfide bond with other thiol-containing molecules, such as Hcy itself, cysteine, and the cysteine residue of plasma proteins.
These methods often use benzofurazanes as derivatization reagents that are considered to be specific for the thiol group of HCY (5-14).
Correct orientation of a surface capture antibody also increases the potential use of antibody fragments, which can be tailored for solid-phase coupling by the introduction of a site-specific group, such as a thiol group, through genetic engineering (Meretoja et al.
3) by inserting a specific reactive amino acid, such as a cysteine with its reactive -SH thiol group, at a selected site (Fig.
