DTT (Dithiothreitol)

In the partial revision of the Poisonous and Deleterious Substances Control Act in Japan on July 1, 2008, 2-mercaptoethanol and preparations containing it were designated to poisons.
Dithiothreitol (DTT), a reagent with activities similar to 2-mercaptoethanol, is also in extensive uses including protection of SH group in a protein, breakage of disulfide bond and as a reducing agent. We offers Dithiothreitol (DTT) for Biochemistry grade and for Molecular Biology grade.
