Biological ActivityMargatoxin is a potent KV1.3 channel blocker (IC50 = 36 pM). Displays no effect at calcium-activated channels. Reduces VEGF-induced transmembrane calcium influxes and nitric oxide production in human endothelial cells.
(Modifications: Disulfide bridge between 7 - 29, 13 - 34, 17 - 36)

Margatoxin was used in our lab to study SK channel opening and blocking effect. Margatoxin was used to compare with other selective SK channel blockers as they do not show significant SK blocking. The product performed excellent in sterile cell culture labs and would high recommend. The product is water soluble which is also a plus.
