Chemical Name: 2-Deoxy-D-arabino-hexose

Biological Activity

Non-metabolizable glucose analog. Inhibits phosphorylation of glucose by hexokinase; causes depletion of cellular ATP. Also inhibits phosphoglucose isomerase (PGI) competitively. Causes cell cycle inhibition and cell death in in vitro models of hypoxia; blocks tumor cell growth in animal models. Also shown to induce the unfolded protein response (UPR).

Technical Data

Soluble to 100 mM in water and to 100 mM in DMSO
Store at +4°C
