B107 L-BMAA hydrochloride ≥97% (NMR), powder L-BMAA is a neurotoxic amino acid originally isolated from Cycas circinalis, which may cause Guam disease, a form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
A6636 Aflatoxin B1 from Aspergillus flavus from Aspergillus flavus Green Alternative Aflatoxin B1 is a carcinogenic compound produced by Aspergillus flavus, a common soil fungus, that induces transversion of G to T at codon 249 of the p53 tumor suppressor gene. Aflatoxin B1 is a food contaminant and a hepatocarcinogen. Aflatoxin is biotransformed to genotoxic intermediates by P450 Phase I enzymes, mainly CYP3A4 via aflatoxin B1 3-hydroxylation. Detoxification depends on Phase II enzymes, such as Glutathione S-Transferase and AFB(1)-aldehyde reductase (AFAR). Aflatoxin B1 is a CYP1A2, CYP2A6, CYP2D6, and CYP3A family substrate.
C9759   Cardiotoxin from Naja mossambica mossambica  
C3741   Cholera Toxin B subunit peroxidase conjugate (Contains ~ 2 moles HRP/mole of CTB. ~100 μg HRP conjugated to ~45 μg CTB), lyophilized powder The cholera toxin B subunit is used for track tracing in neurological research, taking advantage of GM1 ganglioside binding and retrograde transport. Tissue culture cells treated with cholera toxin are not killed and tissues of animals do not become necrotic.
