Description

Praziquantel is an anti-helminthic that causes contractions and paralysis in non-resistant organisms. Research suggests praziquantel works mostly by increasing cell permeability.

    CAS Number

    55268-74-1

    Molecular Formula

    C19H24N2O2

    Molecular Weight

    312.41

    Mechanism of Action

    Praziquantel increases the permeability of the tegmentum to Ca2+ inducing paralytic muscle contraction and death. Recent studies have indicated that praziquantel binds to a variant of the β- subunit of the voltage gated Ca2+ channel and to actin, which is a component of some Ca2+ channels.

    Storage Conditions

    -20°C

    2933.59.3600

Applications

    Eukaryotic Cell Culture Applications

    Praziquantel is a potent anthelmintic against parasitic flatworms (flukes and tapeworms).
