Acyl-N-methylglucamide (MEGA) detergents are non-ionic detergents that provide a good starting point for your structural biology work. The hydrophilic head groups offer ample strength to extract proteins while still providing the capability to stabilize proteins in solution and promote crystal growth.
MEGA-9 (N-nonanoyl-N-methyl-D-glucamine) is a nonionic sugar-based surfactant. It is a membrane solubilizer and can forms vesicles.
