Discontinued Product

Unfortunately CALP2 (Cat. No. 2091) has been withdrawn from sale for commercial reasons.
Cat.No. 2091 - CALP2 | CAS No. 261969-05-5
Description: Cell-permeable calmodulin antagonist
Alternative Names: Calcium-like peptide 2

Biological Activity

Cell-permeable calmodulin (CaM) and troponin C antagonist; binds to the EF-hand/Ca2+-binding site. Inhibits Ca2+/CaM-dependent activation of phosphodiesterase. Increases agonist-induced intracellular [Ca2+] increases and NO production in airway epithelial cells and activates alveolar macrophages. Also inhibits VLA-5-mediated adhesion of mast cells to fibronectin.
