Product Description

Lithium Chloride

Application Notes

Lithium Chloride is used as an electrolyte for low temperature dry battery cells and as an oxidation catalyst. It is a solubilizer for polyamides and cellulose when used with amide solvents, and is a chlorinating agent for steroid substrates. It has also been utilized in: Large scale plasmid DNA isolation without ultracentrifugation; Protein extraction and protein crystallization; Crystallization of other biological structures, including vitamin B12-RNA aptamer and the L-A virus particle; Inhibits the expression and secretion of insulin-like growth factor-binding protein-1 in H4-II-E cells; Used in the synthesis of beta-substituted alpha-amino acid derivatives; May be used to selectively pre­cipitate RNA.

Biochemical Physiological Actions In developing Xenopus embryos, Lithium Chloride is observed to exert inhibition of glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK-3β), yet not reported to be a general inhibitor of other protein kinases. These observations may have implications for Lithium Chloride on cell-fate determination in several organisms including Xenopus and Dictyostelium. Additionally, in transfected Chinese Hamster Ovary cells (CHO) stimulated with angiotension II (Ang II), it was noted that Lithium Chloride enhanced the production of inositol triphosphate. Lithium Chloride may also have anti-viral properties as reported by a study that noted that the compund inhibited pseudorabis virus infection in vitro. In Drosophila, it was observed that in the nervous system, Lithium Chloride may have an effect on amino acid metabolism. Futhermore, in glial primary cell cultures, Lithium Chloride has been noted to provide protection against glutamate excitotoxicity by potentially reducing NR1 mRNA, the major N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) subunit in the cells.
