Biological Data

Biological description

Non-selective calcium ionophore which facilitates transport of Ca2+ across the plasma membrane.

Increases intracellular Ca2+ concentration to induce Ca2+-dependent cell death. Also increases Zn2+ and Fe2+ permeability across the cell membrane.

Induces ROS and oxidative platelet particle formation.

Also activates IKK2 and NF-κB in mast cells, induces cytokine production and degranulation.

Additionally shown to induce apoptosis and autophagy.
