Chemical Name: 9,10-Dihydro-9,10[1',2']-benzenoanthracene-1,4-dione

Biological Activity

Inhibitor of interaction between calcineurin and its substrate nuclear factor of activated T cells (NFAT); blocks at the substrate recognition site but not at the catalytic site (Kd = 0.8 mM). Inhibits NFAT dephosphorylation and nuclear import. Also prevents induction of cytokine mRNAs that are downstream targets of NFAT.

Technical Data

Soluble to 20 mM in DMSO
>98 %
Store at RT
