3-(4,5-Dimethyl-2-thiazolyl)-2,5-diphenyl-2H-tetrazolium·bromideresearch grade

(MTT, Thiazolyl blue)
C18H16BrN5SMr 414.33CAS [298-93-1]

Tetrazolium salt, abbreviated to MTT, used for detection of dehydrogenases in combination with phenazine methosulfate (1). MTT is utilized as a colorimetric metabolic activity indicator in cell viability assays and to determine cell proliferation (3, 4). It works as a terminal electron acceptor in the cycling assay for pyridine nucleotides (2).
MTT produces a yellowish solution that is converted to dark blue, water-insoluble MTT formazan by mitochondrial dehydrogenases of living cells. The blue crystals are solubilized with acidified isopropanol and the intensity is measured colorimetrically at 570 nm.
