Catalog Number: 3715
Chemical Name: (2S,3R,4S,4aR)-3,4,4a,5-Tetrahydro-2,3,4,7-tetrahydroxy-(1,3)dioxolo(4,5-j)phenanthridin-6(2H)-one
Biological Activity
Exhibits antiproliferative and pro-apoptotic effects in carcinoma cells and displays cytotoxic activity against a panel of 60 cancer cell lines (mean IC50 = 47 nM). Activity decreases rate of cell division and increases mitosis duration in vitro. Also modulates the Rho/ROCK/LIM kinase/cofilin pathway; stimulates RhoA activation and induces actin polymerization.
