General description

The enzyme nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) is involved in the production of nitric oxide.

Application

Spermidine has been used:
  • in the preparation of 5x transcription buffer
  • in the treatment of double-stranded RNA along with other reagents to increase the uptake of dsRNA by nematodes
  • as a standard in the analytical study of rat brain polyamines (185)

Packaging

1, 5, 25 g in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Inhibits neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS). Binds and precipitates DNA; may be used for purification of DNA binding proteins. Stimulates T4 polynucleotide kinase activity.

Caution

Solutions should be sterile-filtered, not autoclaved, if sterile solution is necessary. Spermidine deaminates with time; solutions should be stored frozen. Prepare new solutions frequently.

Other Notes

Store under inert gas. Air sensitive; strongly hygroscopic.
