Chemical Name: (3aS)-(-)-1,2,3,3a-Tetrahydro-3a-hydroxy-6-methyl-1-phenyl-4H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]quinolin-4-one
Biological Activity(S)-(-)-Blebbistatin is a selective inhibitor of myosin II ATPase activity (IC50 ~0.5 - 5 μM); active enantiomer of (±)-blebbistatin. Inhibits contraction of the cleavage furrow without disrupting mitosis or contractile ring assembly. Rapidly and reversibly blocks cell blebbing, and disrupts directed cell migration and cytokinesis in vertebrate cells.
