Discontinued Product

Batrachotoxin (Cat. No. 2914) has been withdrawn from sale for commercial reasons.
Description: Voltage-gated Na+ channel activator
Alternative Names: BTX
Chemical Name: (1S)-1-[(5aR,7aR,9R,11aS,11bS,12R,13aR)-1,2,3,4,7a,8,9,10,11,11a,12,13-Dodecahydro-9,12-dihydroxy-2-11a-dimethyl-7H-9,11b-epoxy-13a,5a-propenophenanthro[2,1-f][1,4]oxazepin-14-yl]ethyl 2,4-dimethyl-1H-pyrrole-3-carboxylate

Biological Activity for Batrachotoxin

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).
