CAS NO.: 22373-78-0
Chemical Formula: C36H61O11•Na
Molecular Weight: 692.8600
DMF&GMP status:
Description:
Monensin (Na) is a polyether small molecule ionophore, capable of forming stable complexes to monovalent cations with specific affinity for Na+. Monensin presents a highly lipophilic scaffold around the bound ion, allowing movement of the complex through the lipid bilayer and consequent transport of the ion out of the cell. Excessive flux of ions out of the cell produces a cytotoxic effect and generates the antibiotic properties of Monensin.
