Selective inhibitor of myosin II ATPase activity (IC50 ~0.5 - 5 μM); active enantiomer of (±)-blebbistatin. Inhibits contraction of the cleavage furrow without disrupting mitosis or contractile ring assembly. Rapidly and reversibly blocks cell blebbing, and disrupts directed cell migration and cytokinesis in vertebrate cells.
