Dear Peggy:

DTT is a reducting agent. It reduces the disulfide bonds in several 
proteins.  If this proteins are enzymes with disulfide bonds (cystein 
proteinases), the result will be an enzymatic activation.

Hi,

Could anybody tell me the function of DTT (dithiotreitol) in the solution 
of several enzymes?

Thanks
