Description

Application

Cysteamine is suitable for use:
• in the preparation of cysteamine modified gold nanoparticles (AuNP)
• in the fabrication of SU-8 microrods, where in, the amine group of cysteamine reacts with the unreacted epoxide rings present on the surface of the particles, thereby opening it and forming a covalent bond
• to enhance in vitro development of porcine oocytes matured and fertilized in vitro
• in a study to demonstrate the depletion effect of cysteamine on cystinotic leucocyte granular fractions of cystine by disulphide interchange
• as a radioprotector
• to administer subcutaneously in rats to study its blocking effect on somatostatin secretion without modifying the pancreatic insulin or glucagon content
• as a scavenger in electrophoretic gels (acetic acid/urea gels)

Biochem/physiol Actions

Cysteamine (β-mercaptoethylamine) depletes cystine from patient′s cells and there by regulates renal glomerular function and increases growth in them. Therefore, cysteamine is considered to be a potential therapeutic for nephropathic cystinosis.
