Application

Pyruvic acid was used to study the cultivation of previously undescribed soil bacteria as micro colonies using soil substrate membrane system. Pyruvic acid was used to develop a new method for simultaneous determination of organic acids in red wine and must using liquid chromatography.

Packaging

25, 100 g in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Pyruvic acid reacts with N-acetyl mannosamine by an aldol-type condensation to form sialic acid. Pyruvic acid is a component of commercial red seaweed polysaccharide. In muscle, pyruvic acid (derived from glycogen) is reduced to lactic acid during exertion, which is reoxidized and partially retransformed to glycogen during rest.

The most common risk factor for developing hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is chronic infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV). To better understand the evolutionary forces driving HCC, we performed a near-saturating transposon mutagenesis screen in a mouse HBV model of HCC.
