Alternative Name: Picropodophyllin

Chemical Name: (5R,5aS,8aR,9R)-5,8,8a,9-Tetrahydro-9-hydroxy-5-(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)-furo[3',4':6,7]naphtho[2,3-d]-1,3-dioxol-6(5aH)-one

Biological Activity

Orally active insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor (IGF1R) inhibitor that exhibits no activity at the insulin receptor, FGFR, PDGFR or EGFR. Inhibits IGF1R autophosphorylation (IC50 ~ 1 nM), increases the fraction of cells in the G2/M phase and upregulates apoptosis. Exhibits antiproliferative effects in multiple cancer cell lines (IC50 = 0.05 - 15 μM), and has anticancer and antineovascularization activity in vivo.

Technical Data

Soluble to 100 mM in DMSO
>97 %
Store at +4°C
