Chemical Name: 22,23-Dihydroavermectin B1
Biological ActivityIvermectin is a positive allosteric modulator of the α7 neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptor and the purinergic P2X4 receptor. Antihelmintic and antiviral. Also modulates glutamate- and GABA-activated chloride channels. Potentiates glycine-gated currents at low concentrations (30 nM). Inhibits replication of SARS-CoV-2 in vitro (IC50 ~ 2μM).
This product is composed of both Ivermectin B1a (>90%) and Ivermectin B1b.
