Nigericin sodium salt
Cat. No. 4312
Chemical Name: (2R)-2-[(2R,3S,6R)-6-[[(2S,4R,5R,7R
Biological ActivityPotassium ionophore, exchanges K+ for H+ across biological membranes, in a similar manner to Valinomycin (Cat. No. 3373). Stimulates mitochondral ATPase activity and disrupts membrane potential. Also acts as an ionophore for Pb2+ with no activity with other divalent cations. Antibiotic derived from Streptomyces hygroscopius.
