Monensin sodium salt is an antibiotic secreted by the bacteria Streptomyces cinnamonensis. Monensin sodium salt is an ionophore that mediates Na+/H+ exchange. Monensin sodium salt causes a marked enlargement of the MVBs and regulates exosome secretion.

How to use
Monensin sodium salt (Coban), isolated from Streptomyces cinnamonensis, is a well-known representative of naturally polyether ionophore antibiotics. Monensin is an ionophore related to the crown ethers with a preference to form complexes with monovalent cations such as: Li+, Na+, K+, Rb+, Ag+, and TI+. Monensin A is able to transport these cations across lipid membranes of cells, playing an important role as an Na+/H+ antiporter. It blocks intracellular protein transport, and exhibits antibiotic, antimalarial, and other biological activities. The antibacterial properties of monensin and its derivatives are a result of their ability to transport metal cations through cellular and subcellular membranes.
