Chemical Name: 2-Deoxy-D-arabino-hexose
Biological ActivityNon-metabolizable glucose analog. Inhibits phosphorylation of glucose by hexokinase; causes depletion of cellular ATP. Also inhibits phosphoglucose isomerase (PGI) competitively. Causes cell cycle inhibition and cell death in in vitro models of hypoxia; blocks tumor cell growth in animal models. Also shown to induce the unfolded protein response (UPR).

2-DG (10mM) was used to inhibit the glycolytic pathway in MDA-MB-231 cell lines.
Used to inhibit glycolysis and influence activity of a lipid peroxidation enzyme. Good activity was observed at 5 mM with the majority of cell lines surviving. We found a few cancer cell lines where 5 uM was cytotoxic
Used in brain slices to block glycolysis. Effect observed on cells within minutes of bulk application, as expected.
