is an effective Ca2+
ionopohre that is commonly used to both modify intracellular Ca2+
concentrations and to calibrate fluorescent Ca2+
indicators when studying the regulatory properties of Ca2+
in cellular processes. Ionomycin also transports Pb2+
and some other divalent cations, as well as several lanthanide series trivalent cations, at efficiencies that are greater than or equal to those for Ca2+
