Overview

  • Product name

    Riboflavin-5-phosphate sodium salt dihydrate, Enzyme cofactor
  • Description

    Enzyme cofactor.
  • Alternative names

    • Flavin mononucleotide sodium salt dihydrate
    • FMM-Na·2H2O
    • FMN dihydrate
    • FMN Na-dihydrate
  • Biological description

    Enzyme cofactor used as a prosthetic group by oxidoreductase (one and two electron transfer) enzymes such as NADH dehydrogenase, nitric oxide synthase, and nitrilotriacetate monooxygenase. Also used as a substrate to study the specificity and kinetics of FMN phosphohydrolases and to study molecular sensing based gene regulation by riboswitches. Can be used as a photoinitiator of polymerization for PAGE gels.
