  • Lyophilized Powder
  • Bioassay Tested
  • Origin Natural peptide isolated from Anthopleura elegantissima (Sea anemone).
    MW: 4884 Da.
    Purity: >98% (HPLC)
    Effective concentration 1-5 nM.
    Sequence GVPCLCDSDGPSVRGNTLSGILWLAGCPSGWHNCKAHGPTIGWCCKQ.
    Modifications Disulfide bonds between Cys4-Cys44, Cys6-Cys34, and Cys27-Cys45.
      • Anthopleurin-C
    Molecular formula C210H316N62O61S6.
    Activity Anthopleurin-C is a potent cardiotoxin, which evokes a positive inotropic and chronotropic effect on mammalian heart muscle1,2. It also modifies the current passing through the fast Na+ channel in neuroblastoma cells, leading to delay and incomplete inactivation2.
    Shipping and storage Shipped at room temperature. Product as supplied can be stored intact at room temperature for several weeks. For longer periods, it should be stored at -20°C.
    Solubility Any aqueous buffer. Centrifuge all product preparations before use (10000 x g 5 min).
    Storage of solutions Up to one week at 4°C or three months at -20°C.
