This implies that the stability constant of the complex must be high enough to allow complexation on the outside of the membrane yet low enough for Ca2+ to be released again on the 22 Calcium in Human Biology inside. The released Ca2+ is then available to stimulate or even enhance the customary action of the cell concerned. X-537A is another such ionophore but it is less selective for Ca2+ than is A23187 (Pressman 1976). More recently, however, ionomycin (extracted from Streptomyces conglobatus) has been shown to have a greater selectivity for Ca2+ over Mg2+ than A23187 (Liu and Hermann 1978).
