Description

Urea can be used as a detergent. Urea solubilizes and denatures proteins at high concentrations by disrupting noncovalent bonds.

 

Applications

• Protein denaturant / solubilizer
• Used as a detergent
• Used in polyacrylamide gels to fractionate low molecular weight DNA or RNA
• Used in cell culture to increase osmolarity

 

Specifications

• Composition: Chloride (Cl): <0.001%, Sulfate (SO4): <0.003%, Heavy Metals (Pb): <0.001%, Potassium (K): <0.03%, Ammonium (NH4): <0.05%
• EC Number: 200-315-5

USE
Urea is used for protein denaturation and as a mild solubilization agent for insoluble or denatured proteins. It is also useful for the protein isolation via urea-containing polyacrylamide gels, and for the study of unfolded proteins conformation under different urea concentration and pH. Similar to guanidine hydrochloride, urea has been used as a detergent to denature proteins at high concentrations, or in cell culture to increase the osmolarity.
