Product Description

Brefeldin A

Application Notes

Brefeldin A reversibly inhibits the intracellular translocation of proteins in eukaryotes, e.g., during transport of proteins to the cell surface for secretion or expression. It has been reported to block the response of cultured cells to cholera toxin. In HepG2 cells, BFA induces two blocks in the secretory pathway; one at the level of the endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi juncture and the other in the trans-Golgi network. Brefeldin A is used in the studies of Brefeldin A-inhibited Guanine Nucleotide-exchange Protein, BIG2, Regulates the Constitutive Release of TNFR1 Exosome-like Vesicles.

Key Applications

Brefeldin A blocks protein transportation into post-Golgi compartments.
