Alternative Name: XeC

Chemical Name: (1R,4aR,11R,12aS,13S,16aS,23R,24aS)-Eicosahydro-5H,17H-1,23:11,13-diethano-2H,14H-[1,11]dioxacycloeicosino[2,3-b:12,13-b']dipyridine

Biological Activity

Reported inhibitor of IP3-dependent Ca2+ release. Inhibits bradykinin-induced Ca2+ release in PC12 cells and attenuates PHP-induced IL-2 production in Jurkat T cells. Exhibits no effect on ryanodine receptor-mediated Ca2+ release in PC12 cells. Does not interact with the IP3 binding site. Recently shown to be an ineffective antagonist of IP3-evoked Ca2+ release in IP3 receptor expressing DT40 cells. Cell permeable.

Technical Data

Soluble to 2 mM in DMSO and to 2 mM in ethanol
Desiccate at -20°C
