    Praziquantel

    $33.42 - $155.96

    Praziquantel is an anti-helminthic that causes contractions and paralysis in non-resistant organisms. Research suggests praziquantel works mostly by increasing cell permeability.

    Mechanism of ActionPraziquantel increases the permeability of the tegmentum to Ca2+ inducing paralytic muscle contraction and death. Recent studies have indicated that praziquantel binds to a variant of the β- subunit of the voltage gated Ca2+ channel and to actin, which is a component of some Ca2+ channels.
    Eukaryotic Cell Culture ApplicationsPraziquantel is a potent anthelmintic against parasitic flatworms (flukes and tapeworms).
