General description

Sodium ascorbate, also known as mineral ascorbate, is the sodium salt of ascorbic acid, commonly referred to as vitamin C. This water-soluble molecule finds diverse applications, prominently in cell biology, where it serves as a crucial reducing agent to mitigate oxidative stress. Its significance extends to biochemical research, where it functions as an essential nutrient for both humans and animals. Additionally, sodium ascorbate acts as a cofactor for numerous enzymes involved in cellular metabolism, playing roles as an endogenous antioxidant, coenzyme, and metabolite in metabolomics studies.

In biochemical research, L-ascorbic acid sodium salt demonstrates its versatility as a collagen deposition enhancer and an elastogenesis inhibitor. These attributes contribute to its broader applications in understanding cellular processes and mechanisms, making it an indispensable tool for exploring various facets of biochemistry, metabolomics and cellular biology.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), a low-molecular-weight carbohydrate has an ene-diol structure. It is an abundant water-soluble electron donor in nature. Vitamin C is abundantly found in fruits and vegetables.

Application

(+)-Sodium L-ascorbate has been used:
  • as a standard to study the antioxidant and cytotoxicological effects of aloe vera food supplements
  • in the preparation of solution B for the detection of mitochondrial DNA replication using 5-ethynyl-2′-deoxyuridine (EdU)
  • to prepare EdU-labeling solution
  • to prepare β-galactosidase staining solution

Biochem/physiol Actions

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) serves as a reductant. It plays a vital role in vascular function.

Features and Benefits

  • Can be used in Metabolomics and Biochemical research
  • High-quality compound suitable for multiple research applications
