Acts as a calcium chelatorBAPTA is used as a selective calcium chelating reagent. It is suitable for the spectrophotometric monitoring of calcium levels. It is a lipophilic diesters of the chelating agent used for the inhibition of proteolytic activities of certain metalloproteinases, calpain and transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE).
