Description Poly(diethylene glycol methacrylate)-co-(oligoethylene glycol methacrylate), (PM(EO)2MA-co-OEGMA) is a comb-shaped, graft copolymer consisting of hydrophilic oligomer polyethylene glycol (PEG) chains grafted to a hydrophobic polymethacrylate backbone. In this material, the PEG chains are either diethylene glycol units or oligomer PEG (n=8-9) units. Resulting material properties can be tuned by controlling the ratio of each component. POEGMA has been suggested as a viable alternative to PEG in biological and biomaterial applications. POEGMA has been reported to improve pharmacokinetic properties of protein and peptide conjugates, enhance the stability and gene silencing efficiency of siRNAs, as an anti-fouling surface for biosensors, and eliminate PEG antigenicity.
In addition to use in biomolecule-polymer conjugates, PEOGMA has also seen wide spread use in tissue engineering applications, such as hydrogel synthesis. Aldehyde-functionalized PM(EO)2MA-co-OEGMA can be readily used with the corresponding hydrazide-functionalized POEGMA or PM(EO)2MA-co-OEGMA for rapid gelation via reversible hydrazone bond formation. Due to the reversibility of the bond formation and the low viscosity of the precursors, resulting hydrogels can be used as injectable tissue engineering matrices, local drug delivery vehicles for small molecules, or as joint lubricants. In addition, the physical properties of the resulting hydrogels, such as LCST, gelation rates, swelling kinetics, degredation kinetics, and mechanical properties, can all be readily controlled by solution concentration and the ratios of each solution.
Application Activated PEG derivatives can be used to modify peptides, proteins, or in other bioconjugation applications. PEGylated materials have found broad use in drug delivery systems, virology, and immunology, as the incorporation of PEG improves pharmacological properties such as increased water solubility, enhanced resistance to degradation (protein hydrolysis), increased circulation half-life, and reduced antigenicity. In addition to PEGylation, activated PEG derivatives can also be used to form networks for tissue engineering or drug delivery applications, depending on the architecture and reactivity.
