Cat. No. 2505
Alternative Name: Ammonium Ionophore I
Chemical Name: (1R,2R,5R,7R,10S,11S,14S,16S,19R,20
Biological ActivityMonovalent cation ionophore that displays selectivity for K+ and NH4+ (K+ = NH4+ > Na+ > Mg2+ > Li+ >> Ca2+ for nonactin-EVA sensor). Induces cation transport across artificial membranes. Also inhibits P-glycoprotein-mediated efflux of chemotherapeutic agents in multiple-drug resistant cancer cells. Antibiotic.
