Biotin-PEG-CH2CO2H is a biopolymer that belongs to the class of polyethylene glycol (PEG) derivatives. This compound contains a biotin functional group attached to one end of a PEG chain, with a carboxylic acid group (-CO2H) attached to the other end.
The biotin moiety in Biotin-PEG-CH2CO2H is a vitamin that is essential for a wide range of metabolic processes in the body, including cell growth, energy production, and fatty acid synthesis. In addition, biotin is a commonly used ligand in various biological assays and biomedical applications, due to its high affinity for avidin and streptavidin proteins.
Biotin-PEG-CH2CO2H has been widely utilized in pharmaceutical research and development for the design of targeted drug delivery systems. The biotin moiety can specifically bind to avidin or streptavidin proteins, which are often conjugated with therapeutic agents or imaging probes. By attaching the drug or imaging agent to the biotin-avidin/streptavidin complex, the resulting conjugate can selectively target specific cells or tissues that express avidin/streptavidin receptors, such as cancer cells or inflamed tissues.
