BAM15

Description

2-fluorophenyl){6-[(2-fluorophenyl)amino](1,2,5-oxadiazolo[3,4-e]pyrazin-5-yl)}amine (BAM15) is a protonophore or uncoupler of oxidative phosphorylation detected in a screen for uncoupling agents exerting less toxicity than commonly used uncouplers and first described by Kennwood et al. 2013. In their comparison of BAM15 with FCCP it was shown to increase oxygen flux to a similar extent as the classical uncoupler, to display a much broader range of concentrations inducing maximum respiration, to stimulate no formation of H2O2, to leave cellular membrane potential unaffected, and to ultimately exert less cytotoxicity.
