General description

Methylglyoxal is a toxic endogenous by-product of glycolysis. It is a reactive dicarbonyl compound that promotes non-enzymatic glycation of proteins to yield irreversible advanced glycated end products, leading to the cross-linking or degradation of proteins.

Application

Methylglyoxal solution is used in cytotoxic studies.
