Application

Sigmacell cellulose is used in thin layer chromatography (TLC) and cellulose TLC adsorbents. Sigmacell cellulose has been used in studies to inform industrial applications for large-scale purification of enzymes as well as to investigate the cellulase system of Penicillium echinulatum, which has been identified as a potential cellulase producer for bioconversion processes.
High purity cellulose powders for partition chromatography.

Packaging

100, 500 g in poly bottle

Reconstitution

For TLC, simply blend a 15-20% aqueous slurry for about one minute and coat plates; dry at room temperature. Usually does not require activation before use.

Cellulose is a linear extracellular polysaccharide. It is synthesized by membrane-embedded glycosyltransferases that processively polymerize UDP-activated glucose. Polymer synthesis is coupled to membrane translocation through a channel formed by the cellulose synthase. Although eukaryotic cellulose synthases function in macromolecular complexes...
