Chemical Name: 3,3'-Methylenediindole
Biological ActivityDIM is an activator of Chk2 that causes G2/M cell cycle arrest in various cancer cell lines. Antiproliferative and inducer of apoptosis; promotes proteasomal degradation of Cdc25C and Cdk1. Inhibits phosphorylation of EGFR and downstream activation of ERK.
