JenKem Technology provides high-purity PROTAC PEG linkers with various active groups and a range of E3 ligase ligands and E3 ligase ligand-linker conjugates to assist with your PROTAC-related projects. PROTAC (Proteolysis Targeting Chimera) is a novel technology that induces the targeted protein degradation by the ubiquitin–proteasome system. A PROTAC molecule consists of a ligand binding to the target protein, a ligand for recruiting an E3 ligase, and a linker.
The linker plays an important role in a PROTAC. The most common motifs incorporated into PROTAC linker structures are PEGs of different lengths . Employing a PEG spacer in the linker influences the properties of the PROTAC:
– PEG linker increases the PROTAC water solubility, affecting the cell permeability, thereby improving oral absorption
– Linker length contributes to degradation efficiency and PEG molecules can be constructed with various lengths
– Bifunctional PEG linkers enable the rapid and facile assembly of structures containing different attachment sites
