Chemical Name: 9-β-D-Arabinofuranosyl-2-fluoro-9H-purin-6-amine
Biological ActivityFludarabine is a purine analog that inhibits DNA synthesis. Exhibits antiproliferative activity (IC50 = 1.54 μM in RPMI cells) and triggers apoptosis through increasing Bax and decreasing Bid, XIAP and survivin expression. Inhibits cytokine-induced activation of STAT1 and STAT1-dependent gene transcription in lymphocytes. Also displays anticancer activity against hematological malignancies in vivo.
