Cat. No. 3295
Chemical Name: N-Phthalyl-L-tryptophan
Biological ActivityNon-nucleoside DNA methyltransferase inhibitor that blocks the enzyme active site. Inhibits DNA methylation in human cancer cell lines in vitro without detectable toxicity. Demethylates and reactivates epigenetically silenced tumor suppressor genes. Enhances the efficiency of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPS) generation.
