3-Bromopyruvic acid is a brominated derivative of pyruvic acid (sc-208191), which inhibits HXK II (hexokinase II) in cancer cells. As a result of this inhibition the cells are unable to metabolize glucose into ATP directly. Studies conducted on MCF-7 (sc-2206) breast cancer cells show that 3-Bromopyruvic acid hydrate reduces the expression of Bcl-2, c-Myc and mutant p53, which are involved in the cell death signal transduction pathway. Alternate studies indicate that 3-Bromopyruvic acid hydrate is a very selective antibiotic, inhibiting the growth of certain yeasts.

Is 3-bromopyruvate soluble in saline solution?

Asked by: Abha
Thank you for your question. We found that this is soluble in isotonic saline, but were not able to find a recommended concentration.

I want 3-bromopyruvic acid for human clinical trials soon, therefore I need cGMP certification for this product. If I want to order 40kg of this in cGMP level, what's the quotations?

Asked by: bkim019
We cannot provide chemicals regulated as ISO certified and GMP compliant. Our chemicals are for in vitro research use only. Not intended for diagnostic of therapeutic use.
