Chemical Ethidium

Name Ethidium
CAS Type 1 Name Phenanthridinium, 3,8-diamino-5-ethyl-6-phenyl-
Equivalent Terms Bromide, Ethidium | Bromide, Homidium | Ethidium Bromide | Homidium Bromide | Novidium
CAS Registry Number 3546-21-2
Definition A trypanocidal agent and possible antiviral agent that is widely used in experimental cell biology and biochemistry. Ethidium has several experimentally useful properties including binding to nucleic acids, noncompetitive inhibition of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, and fluorescence among others. It is most commonly used as the bromide.
