Biological Activity

Cytochalasin D is a potent disruptor of actin filament function. Alters tight junction permeability. Unlike cytochalasin B (Cat. No. 5474), does not inhibit monosaccharide transport across the plasma membrane.

Technical Data

Soluble to 5 mg/ml in ethanol with gentle warming and to 25 mg/ml in DMSO
Store at -20°C
