As peptides are usually purified by HPLC with acetonitrile gradients and trifluoroacetic acid (TFA), as ion pairing agent, they exist asTFA salts. For most purposes this is not a problem but when adding peptides to cell cultures, the TFA can sometimes be toxic. This problem can be avoided by specifying peptides in either acetate or chloride salt forms.
