General description

Thiourea is an analogue of urea containing sulphur.

Application

Thiourea has been used:
  • as a component of lysis buffer for liver tissue homogenization
  • in 2-D sample buffer for two-dimensional in-gel protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTP) assay
  • in rehydration buffer for protein extraction

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

Packaging

50, 100, 500 g in poly bottle

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.
