Potent and highly selective calcium ionophore. Ca2+/ionomycin complex forms between pH 7-9.5 which has intense UV absorption. Induces apoptotic neuronal degeneration in embryonic cortical neurons and cell cycle arrest at G1 phase. Useful tool for increasing intracellular Ca2+ concentration. More effective than A23187. Non fluorescent. Has been used at 4nM and 2-4µM  (whole cells).
