Application

D-α-Tocopherol polyethylene glycol 1000 succinate has been used as an emulsifier in the preparation of Poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) particle as synthetic DNA carriers by double emulsion (w1/o/w2) and nanoprecipitation method.

Biochem/physiol Actions

D-α-Tocopherol polyethylene glycol 1000 succinate (TPGS) also known as vitamin E TPGS, is a therapeutic agent for vitamin E deficiency in children, administered during chronic childhood cholestasis. TPGS exerts anti-tumor activity in MCF-7 and breast cancer cells by downregulating anti-apoptotic proteins. TPGS finds its application as an emulsifier in the preparation of poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) particles for DNA labelling, produces particles of uniform size, high encapsulation efficiency, increases hydrophilicity and prevents aggregation of particles.
Tocopherols (TCP) (vitamin E) are a series (α, β, γ and δ) of chiral organic molecules that vary in their degree of methylation of the phenol moiety of the chromanol ring. Tocopherols are lipid soluble anti-oxidants that protect cell membranes from oxidative damage. α-Tocopherol is the form of tocopherol preferentially absorbed by homo sapiens. Tocopherol polyethylene glycol 1000 succinate (TPGS) may be used to create biodegradable polymers and antioxidant surfactants.

Curcumin, a naturally occuring polyphenolic phytoconstituent, is isolated from the rhizomes of Curcuma longa Linn. (Zingiberaceae). It is water insoluble under acidic or neutral conditions but dissolves in alkaline environment. In neutral or alkaline conditions, curcumin is highly unstable undergoing...
