General description

Pyruvate is the anion of pyruvic acid.

Application

Sodium pyruvate has been used:
  • to culture MCF7 ρ0 (human breast cancer cell line) cells as parent cells
  • as a supplement in extracellular flux (XF) assay media to incubate cells for measuring oxygen consumption rate (OCR)
  • as a supplement in minimum essential medium Eagle to maintain breast cancer (MCF-7) cells
  • as a supplement in Dulbecco′s modified Eagle medium (DMEM)-based medium and modified Eagle medium (MEM)-α for testis cell culture to evaluate the effect of medium composition on in vitro SSC maintenance

Biochem/physiol Actions

Sodium Pyruvate has shown antioxidant properties and protective effects against oxygen radicals. Pyruvate is produced as part of glycolysis and is an intermediate in many metabolic pathways. It can be converted into acetyl CoA and enter the TCA Cycle.
Sodium pyruvate can be used as a component in culture broth and media. It exhibits protective effects in various animal models of ischemia-reperfusion injury, hemorrhagic shock, and septic shock when given exogenously.

Identifying master regulators of biological processes and mapping their downstream gene networks are key challenges in systems biology. We developed a computational method, called iRegulon, to reverse-engineer the transcriptional regulatory network underlying a co-expressed gene set using cis-regulatory sequence analysis.

Articles

Aerobic Glycolysis and the Warburg Effect

We presents an article about the Warburg effect, and how it is the enhanced conversion of glucose to lactate observed in tumor cells, even in the presence of normal levels of oxygen. Otto Heinrich Warburg demonstrated in 1924 that cancer cells show an increased dependence on glycolysis to meet their energy needs, regardless of whether they were well-oxygenated or not.

Fatty Acid Synthesis and Metabolism in Cancer Cells

Information on fatty acid synthesis and metabolism in cancer cells. Learn how proliferatively active cells require fatty acids for functions such as membrane generation, protein modification, and bioenergetic requirements. These fatty acids are derived either from dietary sources or are synthesized by the cell.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
