HiGlutaXL™ Iscove's Modified Dulbecco's Medium
With L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine, HEPES Buffer and Sodium bicarbonate
1X Liquid Cell Culture Medium

Product Code: HM-AL070G

Product Description:

HiGlutaXL™ medium contains the stabilized dipeptide form of L-glutamine, L-alanyl-L-glutamine. HiGlutaXL™ medium offers several advantages over the conventional glutamine containing media. Dipeptide form prevents the intramolecular cyclization reaction, thus preventing toxic build-up of ammonia. L-alanyl-Lglutamine incorporates L-alanine that protects the alpha amino acid group. Aminopeptidases within the cell break the dipeptide, gradually releasing both L-glutamine and L-alanine for use by the cell. The gradual release of Lglutamine obviates the need to supplement L-glutamine frequently and allows liquid media to be stored at 4°C for longer periods.

AL070G is HiGlutaXL™ Iscove's Modified Dulbecco's Medium with L-alanyl-L-glutamine, 25mM HEPES buffer and sodium bicarbonate. HEPES, a zwitterionic buffer having a pKa of 7.3 at 37ºC prevents the initial rise in pH that tends to occur at the initiation of a culture and increases the buffering capacity of the medium. Users are advised to review the literature for recommendations regarding medium supplementation and physiological growth requirements specific for different cell lines.
