A potassium ionophore

Applications
Nigericin sodium salt is a polyether ionophore which catalyzes the electroneutral exchange of alkali metal (K+) for H+ (antiport). It disrupts membrane potential and stimulates ATPase activity in mitochondria. It transports monovalent cations across membranes with the following specificity: K+ >Rb+ >Cs+ >>Na. It kills bacteria by facilitating the diffusion of ions across membranes. It is widely used in studies of the consequences of changes in membrane potential in variable systems.

Solubility
Soluble in chloroform, methanol or ethanol

Notes
Stable under recommended storage conditions. Incompatible with oxidizing agents, acids, bases and heat.
