Application

N,N-Dimethyl-p-phenylenediamine dihydrochloride (DMPD) has been used in the HID-AB (high iron diamine-alcian blue) staining of intestinal tract samples.

Packaging

10, 25, 100 g in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

N,N-Dimethyl-p-phenylenediamine dihydrochloride (DMPD) is used for the determination of peroxidase. DMPD is converted into a red pigment of semiquinone nature. It is also used in the HID-AB (high iron diamine-alcian blue) staining procedures, which are used to differentiate between sialomucin and sulfomucin in the gastrointestinal tract.

We isolated a Tn5-induced Rhizobium tropici mutant that has enhanced capacity to oxidize N,N-dimethyl-p-phenylendiamine (DMPD) and therefore has enhanced respiration via cytochrome oxidase. The mutant had increased levels of the cytochromes c(1) and CycM and a small increase in the...
