Biological Activity

Highly potent, selective inhibitor of vacuolar H+-ATPases (IC50 = 0.6 - 1.5 nM in bovine chromaffin granules). Selective for v-ATPase over other ATP hydrolyzing enzymes such as F-ATPases and the H+/K+-ATPase (P-ATPase). Thought to inhibit autophagy either by blocking autophagosome-lysosome fusion (in H4IIE cells), or by blocking lysosomal degradation.

Technical Data
