Chemical Name: (2R)-2-[(2R,3S,6R)-6-[[(2S,4R,5R,7R,9R,10R)- 2-[(2R,5S)-5-[(2R,3S,5R)-5-[(2S,3S,5R,6R)-6-Hydroxy- 6-(hydroxymethyl)-3,5-dimethyl-2-tetrahydropyranyl]-3-methyl- 2-tetrahydrofuranyl]-5-methyl-2-tetrahydrofuranyl]-9-methoxy- 2,4,10-trimethyl-1,6-dioxaspiro[4.5]decan-7-yl]methyl]-3-methyl- 2-tetrahydropyranyl]propanoic acid sodium salt

Biological Activity

Potassium 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.
