Biological Activity: Buy TETRODOTOXIN from Fugu fish Tetrodotoxin is a Na+ channels blocker.

Tetrodotoxin (TTX) binds reversibly to site 1 of the fast voltage-gated sodium channel located at the extracellular pore opening of the ion channel. The binding of a molecule to this site temporarily disables the ion channel.
TTX is used as a chemical tool in channel characterization and in fundamental studies of channel function.
TTX is a valuable agent for the silencing of neural activity within a cell culture.

KD (cardiac myocytes in rats): 0.8 nM.
10-8 M block nervous system; 10-5 M block heart muscle.
ED50 = 3.7 nM.
