Description

Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) is a potent chelating agent. The agent chelates metal divalent cations such as calcium, magnesium, zinc and coppor ions. By removing divalent cations, it minimizes metal ion contamination and used for a bacterial agent.

It may be used for chelation therapy for heart disease by removing toxic metals. It is reported that combination of EDTA-tromethamine (EDTA-Tris) and specific antimicrobial agents, such as cephaloridine, kanendomycin and enrofloxacin, possibly enhances antibiotic effects against resistant Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.

USE
Chelating agent, a general chemical, and a sequestrant. Useful in molecular biology applications to minimize metal ion contaminants. Also used to facilitate enzymatic reactions that could be inhibited by heavy metal traces. Inhibits enzymes, such as metalloproteases, that require divalent cations for activity.
Handling
Use in a chemical fume hood, with air supplied by an independent system. Avoid inhalation, contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Avoid the formation of dust and aerosols. Use in a well-ventilated area. Keep away from sources of ignition. Avoid prolonged or repeated exposure.
