Specificity BeKm-1 inhibits ERG1 K+ channel currents and has minimal effect on ELK1 K+ channels.
Characteristics Source: Buthus eupeus (Lesser Asian scorpion).
Molecular formula: C174H267N51O52S6.
Disulfide bonds between Cys7-Cys28, Cys13-Cys33, and Cys17-Cys35.
Purity > 98 %
Background BeKm-1 inhibits Kv11.1 (hERG) channels expressed in HEK-293 cells. hERG channel currents, before and after application of 1nM rBeKm-1. hERG channel currents were elicited by stepping the potential to -50 mV to +50 mV in 10 mV steps (1-s test potentials) from a holding potential of -80 mV for activation.
Molecular Weight 4092
Application Notes 2-10 nM

K+ channel toxin -KTx 2.1
