4-Azidophenyl beta-D-glucopyranoside CAS:51368-17-3 is a chemical compound that contains several functional groups, including an azide group and a beta-D-glucopyranoside group.
The azide group is a highly reactive functional group that is commonly used in bioconjugation reactions to attach proteins or other molecules to surfaces or other biomolecules. The azide group can react with alkyne or cyclooctyne groups through a copper-catalyzed click reaction or strain-promoted azide-alkyne cycloaddition (SPAAC) reaction, forming stable triazole linkages.
The beta-D-glucopyranoside group is a type of glycoside functional group that is found in many natural compounds, particularly carbohydrates. The glucopyranoside group is important for the solubility and stability of the compound in solution, allowing it to be used in various biological applications.
4-Azidophenyl beta-D-glucopyranoside is often used in chemical biology and bioconjugation studies as a tool to label and detect biomolecules. By incorporating the azide group into the compound, it can be selectively attached to proteins or other biomolecules through a bioorthogonal click reaction, allowing for the creation of biomaterials or targeted drug delivery systems. The beta-D-glucopyranoside group also allows for easy handling and solubility of the compound, making it an ideal tool for various biological applications.
