[Calcium Ionophore] [Calcimycin]
DMSO, methanol and methylene chloride
A23187, also known as Calcimycin or Calcium Ionophore. It is a polyether antibiotic that acts as a calcium ionophore. It facilitates the transport of calcium ions across cell membranes by forming complexes with divalent cations, particularly calcium. A23187 can transport calcium ions across cell membranes, allowing researchers to manipulate intracellular calcium concentrations in various cell types. This property makes it valuable for studying cellular processes that are regulated by calcium signaling.
A23187 is widely used in cell biology to study various cellular processes, including signal transduction, secretion, and apoptosis, that are influenced by changes in intracellular calcium levels. It is often employed to induce intracellular calcium release in cultured cells for experimental purposes.
Use A23187 to avoid potential cytotoxic effects and to ensure that experimental conditions accurately reflect physiological conditions. Can be used in a controlled manner to study cellular responses to changes in intracellular calcium. A23187 serves as a valuable tool in scientific research to investigate the role of calcium signaling in cellular functions and to manipulate intracellular calcium concentrations for experimental purposes.
