    Cytochalasin E

    $97.00 - $336.00
    Cytochalasin E is one of a family of potent mycotoxins produced by a range of fungi. Despite the common mode of action, there is evidence that individual members display diverse selectivity. Specifically, cytochalasin E acts as an angiogenesis inhibitor and, unlike other cytochalasins, does not inhibit glucose transport.

    Cytochalasin E is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF and DMSO.
    Mechanism of ActionAll cytochalasins exhibit profound effects on cytoskeletal proteins, resulting in pronounced morphogenic changes in animals and plants.
