General description

Magnesium chloride is a common ionic halide that readily dissolves in water. It plays various crucial biological roles in enzymology, cell membrane/wall structure, muscle cell physiology, and nucleic acid composition. Additionally, magnesium chloride serves as an essential co-factor in numerous enzymes, including DNAse, specific restriction enzymes, and Ribonuclease H. It is widely utilized to provide magnesium ions in diverse molecular biology applications, including PCR reactions.

Application

Magnesium chloride is widely used to supply the magnesium ion in various molecular biology applications, including PCR reactions and buffers. It has been used -
  • to prepare buffer to lyse cells for immunoprecipitation
  • as a supplement in Krebs-Henseleit buffer in chronic high-fat diet studies of aged mice.
  • in embedding 3-dimensional mtgase hydrogels in invitro studies of osteocyte differentitaion and interconnected cellular networks.
  • It has been used to protect the liver from oxidative damage.
  • to prepare serum-free medium for electrophysiological studies of rat brain slice cultures.

Features and Benefits

  • Available as a Ready-to-use solution which reduces the need for preparation time.
  • Heavy metals (as Pb): ≤5 ppm
  • Free from DNase, RNase, NICKase and protease

Components

Magnesium chloride solution contains 1M magnesium chloride in 18 megaohm water.
