Packaging

1, 5, 10 g in poly bottle

Substrates

CYP2C8/9 and CYP3A family (minor pathway) inhibitor and substrate; CYP2D6, CYP3A family, CYP2D6, CYP2A6, CYP2B6 desethyl-form inhibitor

Application

Amiodarone hydrochloride is a non-selective ion channel blocker with broad fungicidal activity. Amiodarone induces an immediate influx of Ca2+ in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, followed by mitochondrial fragmentation and cell death. Amiodarone hydrochloride has also been used in a study to determine concentrations of thyroid disrupting substances in effluents from wastewater treatment plants.
