Cat. No. 3367
Chemical Name: (-)-1,1',6,6',7,7'-Hexahydroxy-3,3'-dim
Biological ActivityR-(-)-enantiomer of gossypol (Cat. No. 1964). Mimics the BH3 domains of Bcl-2, Bcl-XL and Mcl-1. Disrupts heterodimerization of Bcl-2 with proapoptotic family members. Induces apoptosis in vitro through activation of caspase-9; cytotoxic to multiple myeloma and drug-resistant cell lines. Delays onset of androgen-independent growth of VCaP prostate cancer xenografts in vivo.
