• Digitonin was also shown to alter the mobility of the mitochondrial respiratory complexes and the rates of electron traansfer . (oxphos.org)
  • It is concluded that permeabilization of trypanosomes with digitonin might offer a closer physiological condition for the study of the regulation of glycolysis by using glycolytic intermediates and other chemical compounds which would otherwise not be transported across the membrane(s). (ac.ke)
  • In addition, the extended applications of digitonin within the biomedical and diagnostic sector notably include its use in cell permeabilization to study epithelial and mesenchymal cell responses (8), proteinase K protection assays (9), autophagy and apoptosis (10) and immunoprecipitation experiments.

  • Digitonin can be used in immunohistochemistry studies, as it does not denature proteins and can be considered as a mild surfactant as they are able to break lipid-lipid and protein-lipid associations (5). (apolloscientific.co.uk)
  • Glucose oxidation in intact parasites was stimulated 40% by addition of 3 micrograms digitonin/10(8) parasites. (ac.ke)
