Biological Activity

Reversible inhibitor of actin assembly; blocks actin adenine nucleotide exchange. Complexes with actin in vitro and interacts with actin monomers only, unlike cytochalasins. Prevents actin repolymerization into filaments and disrupts the actin cytoskeleton.

Technical Data

Soluble to 10 mM in DMSO
Store at -20°C
