Application Notes

Agaric acid is an adenine nucleotide translocase antagonist which induces mitochondrial permeability, promoting efflux of accumulated Ca2+, collapse of transmembrane potential, and mitochondrial swelling. Agaric acid has been used historically to inhibit sweating. Agaric acid inhibits both motility and biofilm formation in Salmonella Typhimurium.
