Azido-PEG3-Maleimide linker contains an azide group and maleimide group. The PEG spacer increases the aqueous solubility of the resulting compound. The azide group readily reacts with alkyne, BCN, and DBCO through Click Chemistry to yield a stable triazole linkage. The maleimide group will react specifically with a thiol group to form a C-S covalent bond, which is extremely useful for bioconjugation with cysteine thiol residues.
