Cat. No. 1290
Chemical Name: (2R,3S,4S)-2-[(4-Methoxyphenyl)meth
Biological ActivityProtein synthesis inhibitor (blocks translation). Potent activator of stress-activated protein kinases (JNK/SAPK) and p38 MAP kinase. Acts as a potent signaling agonist to selectively elicit homologous desensitization of immediate early gene induction (c-fos, fosB, c-jun, junB and junD).
