A23187, free acid
Cat. No. 1234
Alternative Name: Calcimycin
Chemical Name: 5-(Methylamino)-2-[[2R,3R,6S,8S,9R,
Biological ActivityCalcium ionophore that induces Ca2+-dependent cell death by increasing intracellular calcium concentration. Promotes intracelllular ROS generation and platelet particle formation (fragmentation) in vitro and in vivo. Can be used to induce autophagy in mammalian cells.
