General description

Pyrogallol is a polyphenol and allelochemical, found on Microcystis aeruginosa and Emblica officinalis.

Application

Pyrogallol has been used:
  • in the superoxide dismutase (SOD) assay
  • to induce modification in mitochondrial DNA and to characterize the same
  • as a standard to confirm the presence of pyrogallol in butanol fraction of white rose petal extract

Packaging

100, 500 g in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Pyrogallol induces superoxide anion (O2-) generation and in the presence of metal ions, it stimulates oxidative damage to DNA and lipids.

Quality

May contain black specks.
