Product nameRiboflavin-5-phosphate sodium salt dihydrate, Enzyme cofactor
- Flavin mononucleotide sodium salt dihydrate
- FMN dihydrate
- FMN Na-dihydrate
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.
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Solubility overviewSoluble in water to 75 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.
