Sodium pyruvate is used by cells as an easily accessible carbohydrate source. Additionally, it is involved with amino acid metabolism and initiates the Kreb′s cycle. The 100 mM solution should be diluted 1:100 for most cell culture applications.
Sodium pyruvate has been used as a component in maturation medium for oocyte evaluation.
Sodium pyruvate is known to be an effective therapeutic target for type II citrullinaemia which is characterized by hyperammonaemia. In vivo studies proves that sodium pyruvate has protective function against hemorrhagic shock by preventing lipid peroxidation, NAD+ reduction and cleavage of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerases. Sodium pyruvate is also known to possess anti-inflammatory action and might show improvement in chronic lung disorder.
