Gold Manufacturer of Good's Buffer Phosphoenolpyruvate Tris (cyclohexylamine) Salt

Release time:


PEP stands for phosphoenolpyruvate Tris (cyclohexylamine) salt, CAS35556-70-8, and is a member of Good's buffer (Good's buffer). Phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) is a very important chemical substance in life activities and participates in various biochemical processes. Whether in the animal kingdom or the plant kingdom, whether in cellular respiration or photosynthesis, PEP plays a role silently.

Phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) powder

Phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) is involved in metabolic processes

1. Cellular respiration

PEP, as an important intermediate product, participates in the last step of glycolysis and is converted to pyruvate after dephosphorization.

2. Photosynthesis

In C4 plants, PEP fixes CO2 under the action of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEP carboxylase) and converts it to oxaloacetate. This pathway is called the C4 pathway. Since the efficiency of PEP carboxylase to fix CO2 is much higher than that of Rubisco, plants with C4 pathway are more adaptable to harsh environments such as high temperature and low CO2, and are widely distributed in subtropical and tropical regions.

What characteristics should PEP have as a Good's buffer ?

The Good's buffer should have the characteristics:

1. High water solubility

2. Not easy to penetrate biofilm;

3. Litte salt effect;

4. The ion concentration, solution composition and temperature have little effect on dissociation;

5. No complex or precipitation with metal ions;

6. High chemical stability;

7. Small light absorption in the ultraviolet and visible wavelength range;
