Application

DL-dithiothreitol solution has been used:
  • in the treatment of intestinal explants
  • in homogenate preparation of gill cells for enzymatic assays
  • in western blotting
  • in transglutaminase activity

Biochem/physiol Actions

DL-dithiothreitol (DTT) is used in a chemical debonding technique, that helps to remove bacteria from biofilms. It can change the structural stability of the GABA(B) (gamma-aminobutyric acid) receptor by disabling the disulfide bonds between four cysteine residues positioned in the GABA(B1(a)) receptor structure.
