Chemical Name: N,N''-Bis(2-ethylhexyl)-3,12-diimino-2,4,11,13-tetraazatetradecanediimidamide dihydrochloride
Biological ActivityAlexidine dihydrochloride is a selective inhibitor of protein tyrosine phosphatases localized to mitochondrion 1 (PTPMT1) (IC50 = 1.08 μM in vitro). Stimulates increased insulin secretion by β-cells in rat pancreatic islets. Displays antitcancer properties in FaDu cells. Also preserves functional hematopoietic stem cells ex vivo.
