General description

Structure, molecular formula and formula weight are representative of the average polymer length of the material.
Dimyristoyl glycerol (DMG) molecule associates with membrane similar to phospholipids.


DMG-PEG 2000 is suitable for use in the preparation of lipid nanoparticle for microRNA and short interfering RNA delivery.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Dimyristoyl glycerol (DMG) − polyethyleneglycol (PEG) 2000 is used for liposome preparation for anticancer drug delivery studies for hepatocellular, gastrointestinal, neuroendocrine and adrenocortical carcinoma. It is also used in lipid nanoparticle preparation for siRNA (small interfering RNA) delivery.
