General description

2-Benzimidazolepropionic acid is a 2-(4-thiazolyl)benzimidazole analog. 2-Benzimidazolepropionic acid is a 2-substituted benzimidazole ligand and its dissociation constant has been evaluated. 2-Benzimidazolepropionic acid is reported to possess active antimarial activity.


2-Benzimidazolepropionic acid is suitable reagent for use in the method of generation of monoclonal antibodies against very small drug hapten, 5-benzimidazolecarboxylic acid by in vivo immunisation method and an in vitro immunisation procedure. It may be used in the synthesis of cytidine derivatives.

Drug-specific monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) were produced against the very small drug hapten (162.15 Da), 5-benzimidazolecarboxylic acid, an analogue of 2-(4-Thiazolyl)benzimidazole (TBZ) but lacking the thiol group. TBZ is widely used as a broad-spectrum anthelmintic in various animal species and humans...
