Technical Data
Dinactin (Antibiotic AKD 1C, Antibiotic S 3466A)
Biochemicals Storage: +4CShipping: Blue Ice
Dinactin is a member of the macrotetrolide complex produced by a range of Streptomyces species. It is a monovalent cation ionophore with high selectivity for ammonium and potassium. Dinactin inhibited T-cell proliferation induced by IL-2 and cytokine production at nanomolar levels for IL-2, IL-4, IL-5 and interferon- . Dinactin has not previously been available for intensive investigation.
