Technical Data
MnTBAP chloride (Manganese (III) tetrakis (4-benzoic acid)porphyrin chloride)
Biochemicals Storage: 4C/-20CShipping: Blue Ice
Cell permeable superoxide dismutase (SOD) mimetic. Potent inhibitor of peroxynitrite-induced oxidative reactions (peroxynitrite scavenger), but not a scavenger of nitric oxide (NO). Neuronal apoptosis inhibitor. Protects T cells from superoxide generation, caspase-dependent DNA loss and cell death. Lipopolysaccharide-induced TNF-alpha production inhibitor, by prevention of intracellular ROS generation and subsequent inactivation of p38 MAPK and SAPK/JNK.

Storage and Stability:
Short-term Storage: +4C
Long-term Storage: -20C
Stable for at least 2 years after receipt when stored at -20C.
