Specificity Voltage-gated channel (Kv1.3) blocker. rBmKTX blocks Kv1.3 channels with IC50 of 019 nM.
Characteristics Source: Mesobuthus Martensii (Buthus martensii).
Molecular formula: C169H274N52O47S7.
Disulfide bonds between Cys7-Cys27, Cys13-Cys32, and Cys17-Cys34.
Purity > 98 %
Background BmKTX inhibits Kv1.3 channels heterologously expressed in HEK-293 cells. Kv1.3 channel currents, before and after application of 100pM BmKTX. Kv1.3 channel currents were elicited by depolarizing the voltage steps of 200 ms from the holding potential -80 mV to +50 mV.
