GUANIDINE HCl, GMP Excipient Grade

Product Code: GHCL-3220 | Previously: GH3220

Intended For Critical Biopharma Applications


Guanidine Hydrochloride is a strong protein denaturant that functions as a chaotropic agent. As a denaturant, it acts to unfold proteins and turn them into their original polypeptide chains. As a chaotropic agent, it breaks down the structure of proteins. Guanidine Hydrochloride is commonly used in the purification of RNA by dissociating the RNA into its nucleic acids and protein forms. At higher concentrations, Guanidine Hydrochloride decreases enzyme activity. It is also used to increase the solubility of hydrophobic molecules.
