General description

Lithium acetate dihydrate is one of the commercially available forms of lithium acetate. Lithium acetate is a common salt with variety of applications such as, product for efficient yeast transformation, drug formulation and therapy, lithium-6 CP/MAS standard, solvent and catalyst. In addition, it is also used as a buffer for gel electrophoresis of DNA and RNA, additive or catalyst for textiles and polymer production and as a precursor material for batteries and ferromagnetic nanoparticles.

Application

Lithium acetate dihydrate has been used for yeast transformation.

Introduction to Yeast Transformation

Transformation is the process by which exogenous DNA is introduced into a cell, resulting in a heritable change or genetic modification. This was first reported in Streptococcus pneumoniae by Griffith in 1928. Transforming principle of DNA was demonstrated by Avery et al. in 1944.
