Chemical Name: (4R,4aS)-18-Ethenyl-4,4a-dihydro-3,4-bis(methoxycarbonyl)-4a,8,14,19-tetramethyl-24H,26H-benzo[b]porphine-9,13-dipropanoic acid monomethyl ester
Biological ActivityVerteporfin is a YAP inhibitor; disrupts YAP-TEAD interactions. Enhances trypsin cleavage of YAP (EC50 = 100 nM). Inhibits growth and proliferation of retinoblastoma cells. Also suppresses cancer stem cell properties in vitro. Suppresses YAP-induced liver overgrowth in mice.

Used it in in vitro treatment assays at concentration of 1 to 10microM for 72 hours. The treatment resulted in a significant time- and dose-dependent inhibition of cell growth & viability.
