Ionomycin was isolated from Streptomyces conglobatus as a potent antibiotic selective for Gram +ve bacteria. During the isolation it was recognised that ionomycin exhibits a very high affinity and selectivity for calcium ions suggesting the metabolite acts as a calcium ionophore. More recently, ionomycin has been used in cell biology as a universal calcium ionophore to explore the role of calcium regulation in the cell. Solubility: Soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO. Poor water solubility. Storage and Stability: Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20 degrees C. Stable for 12 months at -20 degrees C. Reconstitute with buffer. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20 degrees C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
