Safety Information
CYTOCHALASIN B Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertieswhite to off-white powder
  • UsesCytochalasin B is one of the most extensively studied members of a family of potent mycotoxins produced by several species of fungi. All members of the class exhibit profound effects on cytoskeletal proteins, giving rise to pronounced morphogenic activity in animals and plants. Like most cytochalsins, cytochalasin B exhibits potent inhibition of actin filament function leading to cell death by apoptosis, and displays a broad range of resultant cellular actions. Despite the common mode of action, there is evidence that individual members of this class display diverse selectivity. However, lack of comparative co-metabolite analysis has restricted a more complete understanding of their individual selectivity.
  • UsesA cell-permeable fungal toxin used in actin polymerization studies and cytological
  • UsesAs tools in cytological research and in characterization of polymerization properties of actin, q.v.
  • DefinitionChEBI: An organic heterotricyclic compound, that is a mycotoxin which is cell permeable an an inhibitor of cytoplasmic division by blocking the formation of contractile microfilaments.
  • Purification MethodsPurify it by MeOH extraction, reverse phase C18 silica gel batch extraction by selective elution with 1:1 v/v hexane/tetrahydrofuran, crystallisation, subjected to TLC and recrystallisation [Lipski et al. Anal Biochem 161 332 1987]. It is soluble in EtOH (3.6%), Me2CO (1%), Me2SO (37%) and Me2NCHO (49%) at 24o, and can be crystallised from the first two solvents. It interferes with cellular movement [Korm Physiol Reviews 62 672 1982].
