Product Details

Biological Activity

Thalidomide-4-hydroxyacetate is a derivative of Thalidomide (Cat.No. 0652), commonly used as a precursor to PROTAC® that hijacks cereblon as the E3 ubiquitin ligase component. Supplied with a carboxylic acid functional handle at a position known not to significantly affect binding to cereblon, for ready conjugation to a linker/target protein ligand.

Thalidomide-4-hydroxyacetate has been recently renamed. The previous name for this product was TC E3 5031.
