  • Cystine is an oxidized dimeric form of the amino acid cysteine. It functions as an antioxidant, aids in protein synthesis and serves as a link allowing proteins to maintain their 3-D structure. Furthermore, cystine is a substrate for the cystine-glutamate transport system.

    Labeled cystine is routinely used in transport and uptake studies. Available in 10 µCi (370kBq) quantity.
