Mitomycin C is part of a family of azidine natural products. It is a DNA crosslinking and damaging agent, making it a useful antibiotic and antitumor compound. When crosslinking, Mitomycin C displays absolute specificity and high efficiency for the CpG sequence. Mammalian Cells treated with Mitomycin C (0.4 mg/mL for 5 min) can undergo apoptosis through upregulation of Bad, Fas, FasL and phosphorylated p53 along with activation of caspase-3, caspase-8, and caspase-9 activating both the intrinsic and extrinsic pathway for apoptosis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used this product for my mesenchymal cells I used this product for my mesenchymal cells to use as a feeder layer in my experiments. It works well and easily reconstituted unlike Mitomycin C I have used from another company. Will definitely order again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used Mitomycin C for my experiments I have used Mitomycin C for my experiments and I am very pleased with the product. I was working on a project to convert Mouse embryonic stem cells to Neurons and Glia and I needed Mitomycin C to inactivate the feeder cells for ES cell cultivation. The use of this product was smooth and it was easy to reconstitute it in Ethanol. In the past, I have used this same product from a different company and had a lot of issues to reconstitute it in Ethanol. The Santa Cruz product was fantastic. I would recommend this product to all my lab members for their future experiments.
