Cat. No. 2267
Chemical Name: (2R,3S,4R)-3-Hydroxy-2-[(1S)-1-hydr
Biological ActivityA cell-permeable, potent and selective proteasome inhibitor. A Streptomyces metabolite that is thought to bind irreversibly to the active site N-terminal threonine residue of the catalytic β-subunit of the 20S proteasome, thereby inhibiting its chymotrypsin and trypsin-like activities. Induces neurite outgrowth in Neuro 2a neuroblastoma cells and has been reported to induce apoptosis in human monoblast U937 cells. Also inhibits NF-κB activation (IC50 = 10 μM).
