DMEM (Dulbecco’s Modified Eagle Medium) is a widely used basal medium for supporting the growth of many different mammalian cells. Cells successfully cultured in DMEM include primary fibroblasts, neurons, glial cells, HUVECs, and smooth muscle cells. We offer a variety of DMEM modifications for a range of cell culture applications.
- With stable L-Alanyl-Glutamine (Glutamine XL)
Standard, unstabilized solutions of L-glutamine spontaneously break down over time to release cytotoxic amines. Glutamine XL is a stabilized solution that prevents degradation and cytotoxicity, with the benefit of a long shelf life.
The incorporated L-alanine protects the unstable alpha amino acid group of L-glutamine. Aminopeptidase within the cells cleaves the dipeptide, gradually releasing both L-glutamine and L- alanine for use.
DMEM is one of the most widely used modifications of Basal Medium Eagle (BME). DMEM was originally developed as a richer version of BME; with 4 times higher concentrations of amino acids, vitamins and some additional components than BME. DMEM is commonly used for the culture of normal and transformed cells.
