Catalog Number: 3103
Chemical Name: 1,1'-[(1S,2R)-1-[(2S,4R,9R,11S,12S)-12-Amino-4,9,11-trihydroxy-2-methyltridecyl]-2-[(1R)-1-methylpentyl]-1,2-ethanediyl-1,2,3-(2R,2'R)-propanetricarboxylic acid ester.
Biological Activity
Mycotoxin produced by Fusarium moniliforme. Potently inhibits sphingosine N-acyltransferase (ceramide synthase), causing an accumulation of sphingoid bases (IC50 ~ 75 nM). Also inhibits protein phosphatases; IC50 values are 80, 300, 400, 500 and 3000 μM for PP5, PP2Cα, PP2A, PP1γ2 and PP2B respectively.
