Biological Activity

8-Bromo-cAMP, sodium salt is a cell-permeable cyclic AMP (cAMP) analog. It activates PKA and has greater resistance to hydrolysis by phosphodiesterase (PDE) than cAMP. It increases differentiation and induces apoptosis in an esophageal cancer cell line. 8-Bromo-cAMP enhances the induction of pluripotency in human fibroblast cells in combination with VPA (valproic acid) (Cat. No. 2815). In combination with IBMX (Cat. No. 2845), it promotes the differentiation of human iPS cell-derived intestinal epithelial cells. It induces cell-based VEGF production for angiogenesis and osteoblastic differentiation in vitro.
