General description

  • Mitomycin C is a water soluble, blue-violet crystalline powder, unstable in light and acidic conditions, but may be stably stored at 2-8°c
  • Bio-reduced mitomycin C generates oxygen radicals, alkylates DNA, and produces inter-strand DNA cross-links, thereby inhibiting DNA synthesis


  • Mitomycin C is preferentially toxic to hypoxic cells that are resistant to cancer therapy, and is therefore used to study its potential therapeutic effect on advanced stages of cancer
  • At high concentrations, mitomycin C inhibits RNA and protein synthesis and demonstrates strong antibiotic properties towards both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria
