Product nameAllylthiourea, Metabolic inhibitor
DescriptionMetabolic inhibitor. Selective inhibitor of ammonia oxidation.
Metabolic inhibitor. Selective inhibitor of ammonia oxidation. Probably acts through chelating the copper of the ammonia monooxygenase active site.
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Solubility overviewSoluble in DMSO to 100 mM and in ethanol to 100 mM
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
