Oligomycins are macrolides created by Streptomyces species that can be toxic to other organisms. Different oligomycin isomers are highly specific for the disruption of mitochondrial metabolism. Oligomycin B is a nonselective inhibitor of ATP synthase. Oligomycin B (1-10 μM) can reduce the rate of ATP depletion in myocardial ischemia and decrease calcium-induced calcium release oscillation frequency of rat sensory neurons.1,2

Cayman Chemical was formed over thirty years ago by demonstrating the value of naturally growing gorgonian corals as a renewable, economically viable source of prostaglandins. Today we operate our business knowing that we owe our start to the renewable resources our environment had provided. As Cayman Chemical continues to grow we consistently evaluate our business processes to ensure we are operating at the highest environmental standards.
