Description

General description

Vitamin B12 cobalamin refers to a group of chemically-related cobalt containing molecules. The physiologically active forms of vitamin B12 include methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin, whereas hydroxocobalamin (vitamin B12a, OHCbl) and cyanocobalamin (CNCbl) are storage and delivery forms.

Application

Coenzyme B12 has been used as a supplement for culturing plasmid variants in in vivo assay of yvrC-lacZ fusions.

Packaging

1 g in poly bottle

25, 100, 250 mg in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Vitamin B12 cobalamin is involved in DNA synthesis and fatty acid synthesis. It also plays a vital role as a coenzyme in the conversion of mitochondrial methylmalonyl co-enzyme A to succinyl co-enzyme A.
