- Macrolide indol mycotoxin
- Actin inhibitor
Cytochalasins are used as tools in cytological research, and in in the field of actin polymerisation.Cytokinesis inhibitor. Inducer of changes in cell morphology and motility. It disrupts actin structure and inhibits ability of serum growth factors to stimulate DNA synthesis in vitro. Does not inhibit sugar uptake. Active calcium transport inhibitor. Active in vivo.
