Cat. No. 2293
Alternative Name: NSC 309132
Chemical Name: 1-β-D-Ribofuranosyl-2(1H)-pyrimidino
Biological ActivityOrally active DNA methyltransferase inhibitor. Inhibits tumor cell proliferation (IC50 = 120 μM) and re-activates silenced genes in T24 bladder carcinoma cells. Inhibits cytidine deaminase (Ki ~ 2 μM); induces differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells into cardiomyocytes.
