Technical Data
Oligomycin B
Biochemicals Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Oligomycin B, a minor component of the oligomycin complex isolated from selected strains of Streptomyces sp., is an inhibitor of mitochondrial F1F0-ATPase. It makes cells more susceptible to cell death and also leads to a switch in the death mode from apoptosis to necrosis.

Related to:
Oligomycin A, Oligomycin C, 21-hydroxyoligomycin A

Soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO.

Storage and Stability:
For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
