Product Description

Spermine NONOate releases nitric oxide by spontaneously dissociating in a pH-dependent manner. It is useful for reliable NO generation.

  • Generate a controlled release of nitric oxide
  • Spontaneously dissociates in a pH-dependent, first-order reaction
  • White solid soluble in water

NO concentration is often assessed by measuring nitrite level using the Griess Reagent. If a variety of nitric oxide generators are needed, we offer a Nitric Oxide Generation Kit which has 10mg each of SIN-1 (00221), SNAP (00222), S-nitrosoglutathione (00223), spermine NONOate (00224), and DEA-NONOate (00225).
