Product Description

Tetrodotoxin (TTX) reversibly blocks excitable sodium channels and has been a widely used tool for studies of excitable membranes of nerve, skeletal muscle and cardiac muscle cells. Biotium offers high quality tetrodotoxin at a competitive price. Tetrodotoxin citrate-free can be dissolved in slightly acidic buffer. Tetrodotoxin with citrate can be dissolved in water to obtain TTX in pH 4.8 citrate buffer.
