Evans Blue tetrasodium salt
Chemical Name: 6,6-[(3,3'-Dimethyl[1,1'-biphenyl]-4,4'-diyl)bis(azo)bis[4-amino- 5-hydroxy-1,3-naphthalenedisulphonic acid] tetrasodium salt
Biological ActivityEvans Blue tetrasodium salt is a potent inhibitor of L-glutamate uptake into synaptic vesicles. Also inhibits AMPA and kainate receptor-mediated currents (IC50 values are 220 and 150 nM respectively). P2X-selective purinoceptor antagonist. Also a non-permeating dye, stains damaged plasma membrane and enters in the cytoplasm and nucleus, used for checking cell viability.
