General description

Pyruvate, the end-product of the glycolysis pathway, is the anion of pyruvic acid.

Application

Sodium pyruvate has been used:
  • as a supplement in Ca2+ + N-Tris(hydroxymethil)methyl-2-aminoethanesulfonic acid (TES)–NaCl medium for sperm incubation
  • as a supplement in TCM-199 hepes modification solution for cumulus-oocytes complexes (COC′s) culture
  • as a supplement in Dulbecco′s modified Eagle medium (DMEM) to culture mouse primary hepatocytes (MPHs) and also to intraperitoneally inject fasted mice for glucose production assessment

Biochem/physiol Actions

Sodium pyruvate is mainly used as a constituent in culture broth and media. It exhibits anti-oxidation and anti-inflammatory properties. Hence sodium pyruvate is considered a possible therapy for allergic rhinitis. Sodium pyruvate might also be a new approach treating lactic acidosis.
Sodium pyruvate is used by cells as an easily accessible carbohydrate source. Additionally, it is involved with amino acid metabolism and initiates the Kreb′s cycle. Sodium pyruvate attenuates oxidative stress in vitro. The 100 mM solution should be diluted at 1:100 for most cell culture applications. This product has been qualified for use in mouse embryo cultures.
