Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid disodium salt dihydrate has been used along with Na2HPO4 and citric acid for preparing Na2EDTA-McIlvaine buffer. Aqueous solution of Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid disodium salt dihydrate has also been used for photocatalytic hydrogen production
Chelator of divalent cations. Inhibits enzymes, such as metalloproteases, that require divalent cations for activity.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid disodium salt dihydrate is a widely used chelator of divalent cations like Ca+2 and inhibits metal ion-dependent proteases such as calcium-dependent cysteine proteases. EDTA also acts as a chelator of the zinc ion in the active site of metalloproteases; thus it inhibits metalloproteases that requires zinc for activity. Additionally, EDTA prevents platelet aggregation and is a preferred anticoagulant for platelet counts.

Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA)-dependent pseudothrombocytopenia (PTCP) is the phenomenon of a spurious low platelet count due to antiplatelet antibodies that cause platelet clumping in blood anticoagulated with EDTA. The aggregation of platelets in EDTA-dependent PTCP is usually prevented by other anticoagulants...
