Specificity Iberiotoxin is a potent selective blocker of the high conductance Ca2+-activated K+ channels (maxi-K).
Characteristics Source: Mesobuthus tamulus (Eastern Indian scorpion).
Molecular formula: C179H277N51O55S7.
Disulfide bonds between Cys7-Cys28, Cys13-Cys33, and Cys17-Cys35.
Purity > 98 %
Background Inhibition of BKCa channels heterologously expressed in HEK293 cells by Iberiotoxin. mSlo channel currents, before and during application of 100nM rIberiotoxin. The mSlo currents were activated by a 50 ms voltage step to +100 mV from a prepulse of -180 mV with intracellular 10 M Ca2+.
Molecular Weight 4248
Application Notes 50-100 nM

K+ channel toxin -KTx 1.3
