Application

HEPES is added in many cell culture media. It was used to prepare cell suspension for flow cytometry analysis of cardiac progenitor cells.
HEPES is used in many media because it has more buffering capacity in the physiologic pH range of 7.2 - 7.4 at 37°C than sodium bicarbonate. It is commonly added at concentrations between 10 mM and 25 mM. Higher levels cause cytotoxicity. Because bicarbonate is nutritionally necessary for most cells, HEPES should be added in addition to, not in place of, sodium bicarbonate.

Biochem/physiol Actions

HEPES has buffering capacity in the pH range of 7.2 - 7.4. It is added frequently to cell culture media in addition to sodium bicarbonate at 10 mM to 25 mM concentration.

Triple-negative breast cancers (TNBC) are defined by a lack of expression of estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (ERBB2/HER2). Although initially responsive to chemotherapy, most recurrent TNBCs develop resistance, resulting in disease progression.
