Chemical Name: (15R)-6,17-Didemethoxy-15-methoxy-6-methyl-11-O-methyl-geldanamycin

Biological Activity

Ansamycin antibiotic compound that inhibits Hsp90 activity (IC50 = 2 μM) by binding to the ATP-binding site. Exhibits antitumor and cytocidal activities (IC50 ~ 0.4 μM) by causing degradation of key oncogenic client proteins such as ErbB2 and cRaf1. Displays higher affinity and potency than geldanamycin (Cat. No. 1368).
