m-dPEG®4-amine, product number 10175, is a short, water-soluble, single molecular weight, discrete polyethylene glycol (dPEG®) chemical modification reagent. A methyl group terminates one end of the molecule. The reactive terminus opposite the methyl group is a primary amine. This product reacts with carboxylic acids and their active esters to form amide bonds.

Uses of m-dPEG®4-amine

Several different published applications use m-dPEG®4-amine. These applications include the following:

  • development of synthetic, organic nanoparticles with tunable surface chemistry capable of enhancing cellular uptake;
  • site-specific modification of spider-silk-derived nanofibers;
  • improving the intravitreal residence time of nanoparticles for intraocular drug delivery and imaging; and,
  • creation of nanoporous films with size-exclusion properties.

Many other applications of m-dPEG®4-amine are possible. As long as carboxylic acids or their active esters are available for conjugation, conjugation of this product to nanoparticle surfaces and biomolecules can be accomplished readily.
