Application

Magnesium chloride has been used:
  • as a metal cofactor supplement in the terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT) reaction
  • as a component of Tris assay buffer to prepare substrate stocks for /-N-Acyl lysine substrate screening
  • as a component of low-calcium differentiation medium for keratinocyte differentiation
