Description

Ionomycin is a highly specific ionophore isolated from Streptomyces conglobatus. It acts as a transport carrier of divalent cations, helping the cations across solvent barriers. It is used to study calcium transport across the plasma membrane.

It is known to induce apoptosis in some cell lines. For example, it is reported that ionomycin promotes apoptosis in immature B cells and regulates cell cycle in mature B cells. It is also believed that the ionophore induces apoptotic degeneration of embryonic cortical neurons.

Ionomycin is also used to stimulate the intracellular production of the cytokines, interferon, perforin, IL-2 and IL-4 usually in conjunction with PMA.

 

Applications

• Ca2+ ionophore

• Antibiotic

USE
Ionomycin free acid is an antibiotic selective calcium ionophore, which can extract calcium ions from aqueous phase to organic phase. In addition, Ionomycin free acid acts as a transport carrier, which helps transport cations across solvent barriers. Studies indicate that this antibiotic can transport other ions such as Mg, Sr, and Ba with a weaker affinity. It is known that Ionomycin free acid is produced by Streptomyces conglobatus. Furthermore, Ionomycin free acid is a beneficial tool in research to raise intracellular calcium levels. Also this antibiotic can be used to study the calcium transport across the plasma membrane.
