    Paraherquamide A

    $341.34 - $1,194.72
    Paraherquamide A was first reported as a mycotoxin related to the indole tremorgenic mycotoxins. Subsequent research identified a potent, non-toxic paralysis of nematodes which led to the metabolite's development as a candidate anthelmintic.

    Paraherquamide A is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO. Poor water solubility.
    Mechanism of ActionParaherquamide A is a selective, competitive, cholinergic antagonist that distinguishes subtypes of cholinergic receptors.
    Molecular FormulaC28H35N3O5
