(R)-8-Azido-2-(Fmoc-amino)octanoic acid CAS:1191429-18-1 is a chemical reagent commonly used in peptide synthesis for the preparation of peptide libraries and the synthesis of peptides with modified structures. This reagent contains a carboxylic acid group, an azide group, and an Fmoc (9-fluorenylmethyloxycarbonyl) group, which can protect the amino group during peptide synthesis and can be easily removed under mild conditions.
The azide group in (R)-8-Azido-2-(Fmoc-amino)octanoic acid is a bioorthogonal functional group that can be reacted with a complementary alkyne-containing molecule using a copper-catalyzed click chemistry reaction. This reaction is fast, efficient, and selective, making it a valuable tool in biological research for labeling, detection, and modification of biomolecules.
The (R)-configuration of the amino acid in (R)-8-Azido-2-(Fmoc-amino)octanoic acid refers to its stereochemistry, which is important for the synthesis of peptides with specific three-dimensional structures. Peptides synthesized using this reagent can be used in a variety of biological applications, including drug discovery, proteomics, and biomaterials development.
