MM(PEG)n is the abbreviation for a set of compounds having polyethylene glycol (PEG) spacers with methyl (—CH3) and sulfhydryl-reactive maleimide groups at opposite ends. The unbranched, hydrophilic, discrete-length molecules have the form Methyl-PEGn-Maleimide, where the subscript “n” denotes 12 or 24 ethylene glycol units. The maleimide is spontaneously reactive with sulfhydryl (—SH) groups, providing for efficient PEGylation of proteins, peptides and other cysteine- or thiol-containing molecules.


  • Maleimide-activated for efficient PEGylation of sulfhydryl groups at pH 6.5-7.5; reaction of maleimide group results in formation of stable, irreversible thioether bonds
  • Fully characterized PEGylation reagents with defined PEG chain lengths; molecules of discrete molecular weight for consistency of performance in protein-modification applications
  • Provided with either 12 or 24 ethylene glycol units, enabling modification procedures to be optimized for a specific application while retaining all the benefits associated with protein PEGylation
  • PEG spacer provides unique advantages, including increased stability, reduced tendency toward aggregation and reduced immunogenicity
  • Easy-to-follow instructions increase the likelihood of a successful outcome
