Application

Lithium chloride has been used:
  • in the preparation of wash buffer for chromatin immunoprecipitation
  • in 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay
  • to treat aged myoblast as glycogen synthase kinase (GSK) inhibitor to analyse its effect on wingless/tailess (wnt) signaling

May be used to selectively pre­cipitate RNA.

Packaging

100, 500 g in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Lithium chloride has the ability to block glycogen synthase kinase (GSK). It may also possess anti-inflammatory effects at low and non-toxic concentrations.
