HiGlutaXL™ Minimum Essential Medium Eagle (Alpha modification)
With L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine, Sodium bicarbonate
Without Deoxyribonucleosides and Ribonucleosides
1X Liquid Cell Culture Medium

Product Code: HM-AL081G

Product Description:

HiGlutaXL™ medium contains the stabilised 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.

AL081G is alpha modification of HiGlutaXL™ Minimum Essential Medium Eagle with L-alanylL-glutamine, sodium bicarbonate and non-essential amino acid. It is devoid of deoxyribonucleosides and ribonucleosides. Users are advised to review the literature for recommendations regarding medium supplementation and physiological growth requirements specific for different cell lines.
