Application

Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid has been used:
  • as a component of peptide dilution buffer for intracellular BH3 (Bcl-2 homology (BH) domain) profiling and validation
  • as a medium component in the hepatic stellate cell (HSCs) culture
  • as a component of homogenization buffer for protein extraction from eye tissues
  • for stopping benzonase reaction in lysis buffer

Packaging

100, 500 g in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) is an anticoagulant, majorly used in preventing clotting of blood samples. EDTA may trigger aggregation of platelets resulting in pseudothrombocytopenia. EDTA along with tetracycline imparts serves as root conditioning agent and provides relief in gum infection. EDTA-tetracycline therapy decreases coronary artery calcium levels in atherosclerosis. Calcium Disodium EDTA administration is effective in slowing down the progression of chronic kidney disease.
