Catalog Number: 3312
Chemical Name: 2'(3')-O-(4-Benzoylbenzoyl)adenosine-5'-triphosphate tri(triethylammonium) salt
Biological Activity
Prototypic P2X7 receptor agonist that exhibits 5 - 10 fold greater potency than ATP (EC50 = 0.7 μM in HEK 293 cells; EC50 values are 3.6 and 285 μM for rat and mouse receptors respectively). Exhibits partial agonist activity at P2X1 (pEC50 = 8.7) and P2Y1 receptors and can be used as a photoaffinity label for ATPase.
