Sodium Pyruvate Solution is sometimes added to cell culture as an additional source of energy since it is a key intermediate in the production of the high energy intermediate ATP within the cell. Its normal concentration in MEM is 1 mM. Sodium Pyruvate Solution may help cells that are deficient in the nine enzymatic steps that break glucose down to pyruvate. Sodium Pyruvate Solution may also assist in “jump starting” cells in the citric acid cycle and thus help low density cells grow and produce energy in the form of ATP. All BioWhittaker® Cell Culture Reagent and Buffer products are manufactured in accordance with cGMP regulations and are cell culture tested to assure compatibility.
