Product Description

L-Asparagine

Application Notes

L-Asparagine is used in cell culture media and is a component of MEM non-essential amino acids solution. L-Asparagine has been shown to enhance ornithine decarboxylase activity in cultured human colon adenocarcinoma Caco-2 cells and in cultured IEC-6 intestinal epithelial cells. Spore germination in Bacillus subtilis has been increased in the presence of L-asparagine.
