General description

Potassium chloride (KCl) is useful in studies of ion transport and potassium channels. It is known to be used in the crystallization of histone core octamers.

Application

Potassium chloride has been used:
  • in Percoll solution for sperm sample preparation
  • In Blastocyst Cell Number Analysis by Giemsa Staining
  • As a component of noncapacitation medium

May be used for the preparation of phosphate buffered saline, and for the extraction and solubilization of proteins.
