Cystamine dihydrochloride Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertieswhite powder
  • Useshepatoprotectant, t-glutaminase inhibitor, heat shock protein promoter, caspase inhibitor
  • Usessulfhydryl modifying reagent and heparin antagonist
  • UsesCystamine dihydrochloride acts as an anti-infective agent, which is used in the treatment of urinary tract infections. It is also used as a radiation-protective agent that interferes with sulfhydryl enzymes. Further, it serves as a heparin antagonist and sulfhydryl modifying reagent. In addition to this, it is used as an inhibitor of TGase.
  • Safety ProfileA poison by subcutaneous and intraperitoneal routes. Experimental reproductive effects. When heated to decomposition it emits very toxic fumes of HCl, SOx, and NOx. See also SULFIDES.
  • Purification MethodsRecrystallise the salt by dissolving in EtOH containing a few drops of dry EtOH/HCl, filtering and adding dry Et2O. The solid is dried in a vacuum and stored in a dry and dark atmosphere. It has been recrystallised from EtOH (solubility: 1g in 60mL of boiling EtOH) or MeOH (plates). The free base has b 90-Purification of Biochemicals — Amino Acids and Peptides 100o/0.001mm, 106-108o/5mm and 135-136o/760mm, d 4 1.1559, n D 1.5720.
