Packaging

5, 25, 100 g in glass bottle

Application

Reagent for the covalent modification of cysteine residues in proteins.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Augments currents from native M-channels in sympathetic neurons and acts as an opener for KCNQ2, KCNQ4 and KCNQ5 channels.
Sulfhydryl alkylating agent that inactivates NADP-dependent isocitrate dehydrogenase and many endonucleases.

Preparation Note

NEM gives a clear solution in ethanol at 50 mg/ml. NEM dissolves in water (>50 mg in 4 ml); however, aqueous solutions are unstable. The rate of hydrolysis is pseudo-first order and significantly dependent on pH.

Hv1 (also named, voltage-sensor only protein, VSOP) lacks an authentic pore domain, and its voltage sensor domain plays both roles in voltage sensing and proton permeation. The activities of a proton channel are intrinsic to protomers of Hv1, while Hv1

The endocannabinoid 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) plays a major role in many physiological processes, and its action is quickly terminated via enzymatic hydrolysis catalyzed by monoglyceride lipase (MGL). Regulating its endogenous level could offer therapeutic opportunities; however, few selective MGL inhibitors have

Inflammation increases the abundance of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), leading to enhanced production of nitric oxide (NO), which can modify proteins by S-nitrosylation. Enhanced NO production increases the activities of the transcription factors p53 and nuclear factor κB (NF-κB)
