Apamin | Small Conductance Ca2+-activated K+ Channel Blocker
Apamin, a small basic neurotoxic peptide of 18 amino acid residues with 2 disulfide bridges, binds selectively to the Small Conductance Ca2+ channel and acts as a pore blocker for all. It was reported that Apamin can pass the blood-brain barrier. Apamin from PeptaNova is synthesized by solid phase peptide chemistry methods and not isolated from biological sources.
A second SK channel blocker, Scyllatoxin is available for prompt delivery from stock.
