Catalog Number: 3577
Chemical Name: (±)-1-[(3aR*,4S*,9bS*)-4-(6-Bromo-1,3-benzodioxol-5-yl)-3a,4,5,9b-tetrahydro-3H-cyclopenta[c]quinolin-8-yl]- ethanone
Biological Activity
Potent and selective GPER agonist (Ki = 11 nM, EC50 = 2 nM); displays no activity at ERα and ERβ at concentrations up to 10 μM. Increases cytosolic Ca2+ and inhibits migration of SKBr3 cells and MCF-7 cells in response to chemoattractants (IC50 values are 0.7 and 1.6 nM respectively) in vitro. Blocks MCF-1 cell cycle progression at the G1 phase. Displays therapeutic effects in the mouse EAE model of multiple sclerosis.
