• Also known as β-mercaptoethanol, beta-mercaptoethanol, bME, b-ME
• Mild but effective reducing agent, often included in enzyme solutions to protect against catalytic site inactivation due to cysteine sulfhydryl oxidation/disulfide formation; added at final concentrations of 5 and 20 mM, with or without EDTA, as an additional protectant
