General description

Ethylenediamine tetraacetate (EDTA) is a calcium ion chelator, that has a low molecular mass of 292.24 Da.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid disodium salt has the ability to block the binding of vasoactive intestinal peptide to macrophage membranes. It is mainly used in the purification of protein, to remove divalent cations and also to prevent protease activity.
