Applications
Sodium pyruvate is used in cell culture media as an additional source of energy. It acts as an antioxidant and finds protective effects against oxygen radicals. It serves as an intermediate in many metabolic pathways such as sugar metabolism. It is converted into acetyl coenzyme A and enters the trichloroacetic acid cycle. In addition, it is involved with amino acid metabolism and initiates the Kreb′s cycle. It plays an important role as a free radical scavenger.

Solubility
Soluble in water.

Notes
Store in a cool place. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
