Cat. No. 3502
Alternative Name: Patupilone
Chemical Name: (1S,3S,7S,10R,11S,12S,16R)-7,11-Dih
Biological ActivityMicrotubule stabilization agent that promotes tubulin polymerization and induces G2-M cell cycle arrest (EC50 = 32 nM in HeLa cells). Inhibits proliferation of human carcinoma cell lines in vitro, including MDR cells overexpressing the P-glycoprotein efflux pump. Exhibits potent cytotoxicity in MCF-7 and A549 cells (EC50 values are 0.3 and 2.7 nM respectively). Inhibits growth of HCT-15 tumors in mice in vivo.
