Application

ITS Liquid Media Supplement (100×) has been used as a media supplement to culture:
  • α mouse liver 12 (AML-12) cells
  • rat fetal testis explants
  • human dental pulp stem cells (DPSC)

Biochem/physiol Actions

  • Insulin: a polypeptide hormone that promotes the uptake of glucose and amino acids and may owe an observed mitogenic effect to this property.
  • Transferrin: an iron-transport protein.
  • Selenium: an essential trace element normally provided by serum.
