DSPE PEG Folate, Folic acid-PEG-DSPE
DSPE PEG Folate, Folic acid PEG DSPE, MW 20000.
DSPE PEG Folic acid, also called DSPE PEG folate, is one of Nanocs phospholipid PEG derivatives that can be used for folate receptor targeting. Folic acid is also known as vitamin M, vitamin B9 or pteroyl-L-glutamic acid. Folic acid is an essential bioactive molecule for numerous biological functions. It participates in the synthesis, repairing and methylation of DNA as well as to act as a cofactor in many biological reactions. DSPE is a 18 C phospholipid that has high hydrophobicity. Folic acid functionalized PEG DSPE is lipophilic and it can dissolved both in organic solvents and aqueous solution. DSPE PEG Folate has high affinity towards folate receptor. This material has been used for targeted liposome drug delivery.
