General description

Thiourea is an analogue of urea, containing sulphur.

Application

Thiourea has been used:
  • as a component in ice cold sample buffer for protein analysis
  • in intracellular extraction buffer for the extraction of soluble intracellular proteins
  • as a component of electrophoresis buffer

Chaotropic agent; strong denaturant. Increases solubility and recovery of proteins

Biochem/physiol Actions

Thiourea is a free radical scavenger of the peroxide radical. It was shown to inhibit lipid peroxidation and ultraviolet (UV)-induced crosslinking of collagen. Bud dormancy in plants can be inhibited by thiourea, which is used as a growth stimulator. It is also known to be used in the treatment of hyperthyroidism.
