Chemical Name: 6-(1,3-Dihydro-4-hydroxy-6-methoxy-7-methyl-3-oxo-5-isobenzofuranyl)-4-methyl-4-hexenoic acid
Biological ActivityMycophenolic acid is an immunosuppressive agent with antiviral and antitumor effects in vitro and in vivo. Potently inhibits inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase (IMPDH), thus inhibiting de novo GTP synthesis leading to decreased RNA and DNA synthesis. Reversibly inhibits proliferation of T and B lymphocytes and antibody formation.
