Description

Application

Nonfluorescent Ca2+ ionophore that can be used to calibrate the quantitation of cytoplasmic free Ca2+ with fluorescent probes.

Bromo-A23187, a nonfluorescent ionophore, has been used in photolysis of a caged-Ca2+ compound and in [Ca2+]i elevation protocols. It can be used to calibrate the quantitation of cytoplasmic free Ca2+ with fluorescent probes.

Other Notes

In biological environment, bromo-A23187 has a higher selectivity for Ca2+ over Mg2+ than A23187

Biochem/physiol Actions

Ionophores disrupt transmembrane ion concentration gradients which are required for proper functioning and survival of microorganisms. An ionophore, such as Bromo-A23187, increases the permeability of biological membranes to calcium.
