Dear Everyone:

Sigma's reagent catalog saids that DEPC, usually used as RNase
inhibitor, is hydrolyzed to ethanol and CO2. Then, how fast does it
hydrolyze? If it works as the inhibitor, I think it must have time for
binding to RNase. And what's the meaning of DEPC water? Does it means
the water that inhibit RNase if I treat, or that has no active RNase?
And how much toxic is it? I appreciated on any reply. Thanks.
