Ectoine (1,4,5,6-tetrahydro-2-methyl-4-pyrimidinecarboxylic acid) is a natural compound found in several species of bacteria.
It is a compatible solute which serves as a protective substance by acting as an osmolyte and thus helps organisms survive extreme osmotic stress.
Ectoine is found in high concentrations in halophilic microorganisms and confers resistance towards salt and temperature stress.
Ectoine was first identified in the microorganism Ectothiorhodospira halochloris,
but has since been found in a wide range of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria.
Other species of ectoine were found in
Identification methods:Mass, NMR
Analysis method:HPLC-DAD or/and HPLC-ELSD

Storage:4℃Refrigerated, sealed, dark.
Package:20mg, 50mg, 100mg, 1g, 10g, 100g, 1kg... The company can provide a large number of high-purity Ectoine according to customer requirements.
Ectoin from high halophilic bacteria Halomonas Elongata, Ectoine protects halophilic bacteria from harm under extreme conditions of high salt, high temperature, high uv radiation. Research shows that ectoine also has the repairing and protective effects on the skin, enhancing the immune protection of skin cells and increasing cell repair ability, so that the skin can be effective against the invasion of microbes and allergens. It is a biological engineering preparation for high-grade cosmetics.
Ectoine is synthesized in three successive enzymatic reactions starting from aspartic β-semialdehyde.
The genes involved in the biosynthesis are called ectA, ectB and ectC
and they encode the enzymes L-2,4-diaminobutyric acid acetyltransferase, L-2,4-diaminobutyric acid transaminase, and L-ectoine synthase, respectively.
