Chemical Name: 4-[[(5,6,7,8-Tetrahydro-5,5,8,8-tetramethyl-2-naphthalenyl)amino]carbonyl]benzoic acid
Biological ActivityRetinoic acid receptor α (RARα) agonist that induces differentiation (ED50 = 0.79 nM) and apoptosis of HL-60 cells in vitro. Exhibits antiproliferative effects against a variety of human tumor cells lines (mean values of 35, 40 and 60% growth inhibition at 0.1, 1 and 10 μM respectively) and displays anticancer activity against acute promyelocytic leukemia in vivo.
