Gibco® HAT Supplement is a liquid mixture of sodium hypoxanthine (5 mM), aminopterin (20 µM) and thymidine (0.8 mM). HAT-supplemented medium is suitable for post-fusion selection against unfused or self-fused HGPRT–myeloma cells. Hypoxanthine and thymidine supply preformed purines and pyrimidines for DNA synthesis by hybridomas via the salvage pathway that utilizes HGPRT- contributed by the fused spleen cell. Aminopterin, a folic acid antagonist, inhibits the de novo nucleoside biosynthesis pathway. Product Use For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures. Dual site cGMP Manufac...

DAF-FM is a reagent that is used to detect and quantify low concentrations of nitric oxide (NO). It is essentially nonfluorescent until it reacts with NO to form a fluorescent benzotriazole. DAF-FM fluorescence can be detected by any instrument that can detect fluorescein, including flow cytometers, microscopes, fluorescent microplate readers and fluorometers. DAF-FM Specifications: • Ex/Em of DAF-FM: ~495/515 nm • Lyophilized product should be dissolved using DMSO and then added to an aqueous buffer to create a working solution • DAF-FM diacetate is cell permeant and passively diffuses across...

Carboxy-DCFDA can passively diffuse into cells and is colorless and nonfluorescent until the acetate groups are cleaved by intracellular esterases to yield the fluorescent fluorophore, 5-(and-6)-carboxy-2',7' -dichlorofluorescein. With a pK a of 4.8, this dye can be used as an acidic pH sensor.

Sodium Pyruvate is commonly added to cell culture medium as an energy source in addition to glucose. Since the cells make sodium pyruvate as an intermediate metabolite in the glycolysis pathway, it is not necessary to supplement all cultures. However, if the cells have been grown in medium supplemented with sodium pyruvate, we recommend the supplementation is continued as the cells become accustomed to this addition and their growth will lag without it. Gibco® Sodium Pyruvate, 100 mM Solution is formulated as 11 g per liter of water. The final concentration of sodium pyruvate used in most cell...

Knockout™ Serum Replacement (Knockout™ SR) is a defined, serum-free formulation used to support the growth of undifferentiated ES (Embryonic Stem Cells) and iPS (Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells) in culture. It directly replaces FBS in existing protocols. One of the most important parameters surrounding ES cell culture is the maintenance of ES cells in an undifferentiated state. Until now, FBS was the only option for nutritive supplementation of ES and iPS cell media. Unfortunately, FBS also contains factors which can promote differentiation of ES cells. Thus, each lot must be screened prior to ...

Gibco® Insulin, Transferrin, Selenium, Sodium Pyruvate Solution (ITS -A) is used as a basal medium supplement in order to reduce the amount of Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) used to culture the cells. Originally used with RPMI 1640 and Minimum Essential Medium (MEM), ITS-G is now routinely used with other basal media to support a wide variety of cell types in the presence of 2-4% FBS. Insulin promotes glucose and amino acid uptake, lipogenesis, intracellular transport, and the synthesis of proteins and nucleic acids. Transferrin is an iron carrier and it may also help to reduce toxic levels of oxyge...
