  • Using alkyne or azide sugar derivatives for metabolic labeling is simple and efficient. While some researchers still use radiolabeled monosaccharides, the click chemistry approach is much more user friendly and speeds-up the detection method substantially. Once the alkyne- labeled sugar-derivative is metabolized, visualization is straightforward with a variety of reagents and dyes available, just as for all other copper catalyzed click reactions.
