Soluble in water
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
Toxic, refer to SDS for further information.

Percent of TTX-containing food pellets eaten by bluegill over 6 d of repeated feedings.
Pellets were infused with different concentrations of TTX within the range found in newts from the field. P values are from likelihood ratio tests from a GLMM.
Cell-attached recording of a striatal cholinergic interneuron depicting TTX (100 nM) inhibition of spontaneous action potential firing. The open bar indicates time of TTX application.
Quantification of the p-S6rp signal in each striatal ChAt immunoreactive neuron after 1 hour incubation in control or TTX (1 M). Each dot corresponds to one neuron; each color corresponds to a different animal; dashed lines indicate the mean. Fluorescence values are normalized in arbitrary units (a.u.).
