Discontinued ProductUnfortunately Batrachotoxin (Cat. No. 2914) has been withdrawn from sale for commercial reasons.
Potent neurotoxin that activates voltage-gated sodium channels. Shifts voltage-dependent activation to more negative potentials, inactivation is disabled and pore conductance and selectivity are altered (displays increased permeability for NH4+, K+ and Cs+ ions).

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 538.67. Batch specific molecular weights may vary from batch to batch due to solvent of hydration, which will affect the solvent volumes required to prepare stock solutions.
|Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass||1 mg||5 mg||10 mg|
|1 mM||1.86 mL||9.28 mL||18.56 mL|
|5 mM||0.37 mL||1.86 mL||3.71 mL|
|10 mM||0.19 mL||0.93 mL||1.86 mL|
|50 mM||0.04 mL||0.19 mL||0.37 mL|
