Pyruvate is the end product of glycolysis and is used in further metabolic cycles to supply cells with energy. Sodium pyruvate is freely soluble in aqueous solution.
|Mechanism of Action||Pyruvate enters the Krebs or citric acid cycle in the presence of oxygen to supply cells with energy in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate).|
|Microbiology Applications||Sodium pyruvate is a common cell culture energy supplement.|
|Impurity Profile||Free Pyruvic Acid: ≤0.25% |
Heavy Metals: ≤10ppm
Pyruvic Radical: ≥76.0%
