Description
OverviewInhibits ryanodine binding to ryanodine/Ca2+ receptor channel in skeletal muscle in a dose- and time-dependent manner and increases the Ca2+ permeability of SR vesicles. Useful for specific inactivation of nucleases during isolation of undegraded polynucleotides. Also inhibits platelet-activating factor acetyl hydrolase. Has been used as a probe for the topography of 5.8S rRNA in yeast ribosomes.
