Lipids and detergents used for solubilization of membrane proteins can be deuterium-enriched to improve the quality of protein NMR spectra. Alkyl glycoside detergents have been instrumental in the X-ray structure determination of a number of GPCRs, starting with the first structures of the beta-adrenergic receptor solubilized in dodecyl maltoside (DDM). DDMB is a promising newer detergent that forms significantly smaller micelles that its isomer DDM. Here we describe the synthesis and purification of d25-dodecyl melibioside (DDMB) deuterated at the C12 tail.
