The compounds isolated from Phoma exigua were named phomin and dehydrophomin and those from Helminthosporium dematioideum were called cytochalasin A and B, dehydrophomin being identical to cytochalasin A and phomin to cytochalasin B
In Crassostrea gigas, inhibition of PB1 with cytochalasin B resulted in a number of possible chromosome segregation patterns, including united bipolar, tripolar, and separated bipolar (3).
Genetic consequences of blocking polar body 1 with cytochalasin B in fertilized eggs of the Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas: I.
Morphogenesis of maternal and paternal genomes in fertilized oyster eggs (Crassostrea gigas): effects of cytochalasin B at different periods during meiotic maturation.
Cytochalasin B induced triploidy in Penaeus chinensis.
University researchers have successfully packaged Cytochalasin B
-- a potential cancer drug -- in liposomes so that it is released gradually and its toxocity to healthy tissue is reduced.
is well known to prevent polymerization of actin filaments in growth cones of the Aplysia bag cell neuron (1).
Because cytochalasin B was dissolved in dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) before dilution in ASW, the assay was also carried out in 1% DMSO-ASW as a control.
Colchicine, cytochalasin B, and phalloidin-FITC were from Sigma Chemical Co.
Cytochalasin B also inhibited the rounding, with 1 [[micro]gram]/ml of cytochalasin B being enough for complete inhibition.
The inhibitory effects on rounding by cytochalasin B suggest that microfilaments promote tunic rounding.
