Description

Application

Modification reagent for His and Tyr residues in proteins. Robust probe for structural disruptions in dsDNA, reacting with fully or partially unstacked bases.8

Diethyl pyrocarbonate was used as:
• nuclease inhibitor for the extraction of undegraded nucleic acids from etiolated and green plant tissues1
• an antimicrobial additive2
• ribonuclease inhibitor3
• histidine residue modifier4
• reagent for conversion of imines to carbamates5

Biochem/physiol Actions

Inactivates RNase in solution at about 0.1% (v/v), thus protecting RNA against degradation.

Packaging

25, 100 g in poly bottle

5 g in glass bottle

General description

Diethyl pyrocarbonate reacts selectively with the single-stranded loops of cruciform structures.6 The irreversible inactivation of ribonuclease with diethylpyrocarbonate has been studied.7
