Thiamine Hydrochloride (HCl)

CAS # 67-03-8

USP Grade




T009 Thiamine HCl is indispensable in tissue culture, primarily serving as a vital coenzyme in metabolic processes. As Vitamin B1, thiamine HCl is crucial for the enzymatic decarboxylation of alpha-keto acids and the oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate to acetyl-CoA, essential steps in the Krebs cycle. This metabolic pathway is fundamental for ATP production, providing the energy required for cell division, growth, and differentiation. In tissue culture, where cells lack access to natural nutrients, thiamine HCl ensures these critical metabolic processes proceed efficiently, supporting robust tissue development.
T009 Thiamine HCl is pivotal in synthesizing nucleotides and nucleic acids, necessary for DNA replication and repair. This aspect is crucial during the proliferation phase in tissue culture, where rapid cell division occurs. Thiamine HCl facilitates the production of these essential components, ensuring genetic stability and integrity across cell generations. This enhances the success and reliability of tissue culture protocols, improving the reproducibility of experimental results.
In addition, T009 aids in stress resistance and adaptive responses in cultured tissues. It acts as an antioxidant, reducing oxidative stress by neutralizing free radicals. This protective role is vital in in vitro environments, where cells face higher oxidative stress due to artificial conditions. By mitigating damage from reactive oxygen species, thiamine HCl maintains cellular health and functionality, improving the survival rate and viability of cultured tissues.
**Disclaimer:** Results may vary depending on specific cell lines, specifications, and experimental conditions. Consult with cell culture specialists and review comprehensive literature to tailor its use to your specific research needs.
