Application

Ionomycin is an ionophore produced by the bacterium Streptomyces conglobatus. It has been shown to induce central demyelination , inhibit adrenal bovine TREK-1 channels , and to regulate cell division of mature human B cells . It is used to study the effects of calcium flux on endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress, mitochodrial stress and intrinsic apoptosis mechanisms. It is also used to stimulate the intracellular production of the cytokines, interferon, perforin, IL-2, and IL-4 usually in conjunction with PMA.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Ca2+ ionophore that is more effective than A23187 as a mobile ion carrier for Ca2+; non-fluorescent; used to study Ca2+ transport across biological membranes; induces apoptotic degeneration of embryonic cortical neurons.
Ionomycin is an ionophoric antibiotic which binds Pb2+ and Ca2+, and serves as an effective mobile carrier of both cations. Ionomycin is more effective than A23187 as a mobile ion carrier for Ca2+. It is non-fluorescent. It is used to study Ca2+ transport across biological membranes and induces apoptotic degeneration of embryonic cortical neurons.

A Highly Sensitive IFN-γ ELISpot Assay to Quantify Cellular Immune Responses to Previous Viral Infection

This study presents an example of a typical ELISpot assay for quantifying the number of pre-existing, antigen-reactive T cells from peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) samples obtained from donors previously infected with cytomegalovirus (CMV).

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
