Application Notes

Valinomycin is a hydrophobic cyclodepsipeptide with potent antitumor activity. Valinomycin is a highly selective potassium ionophore and this action leads to a diverse range of profound cell membrane effects. More recently, valinomycin has found application as a biosensor to detect to detect potassium efflux.
