General description

Minimum Essential Medium Eagle contains 19 amino acids. The essential amino acids and the non-essential amino acids: L-ala, L-asn, L-asp, L-glu, L-gly, L-pro, and L-ser. This medium is preferred for the growth of adherent cells in the presence of reduced serum or as a base for the development of a serum-free medium. It is suitable for a wide variety of cells grown in monolayers.

Application

Minimum Essential Medium Eagle has been used:

  • to culture endometrial adenocarcinoma Ishikawa cells for bisphenol studies
  • to culture MCF-7 cells for experimental treatments with hormone
  • to maintain zebrafish pineal glands for action spectrum analysis

Features and Benefits

Contains high concentrations of amino acids so the medium resembles the protein composition of cultured mammalian cells

Quantity

Formulated to contain 9.3 grams of powder per liter of medium.

Reconstitution

Supplement with 0.292 g/L L-glutamine, 2.2 g/L sodium bicarbonate.

During long-term potentiation (LTP) of excitatory synapses, Ca(2+)/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) is activated by Ca(2+) influx through NMDA receptors that potentiate AMPA receptor currents by insertion of additional GluR1-containing receptors at the synapse and by increasing AMPA channel conductance

Articles

A large selection of MEM formulations. Minimum Essential Medium (MEM), developed by Harry Eagle, is one of the most widely used of all synthetic cell culture media.

Protocols

Powdered media and salt mixtures are extremely hygroscopic and should be protected from atmospheric moisture.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
