Cat. No. 2600
Chemical Name: 2-Chloro-9-(2-deoxy-2-fluoro-β-D-ara
Biological ActivityDeoxycytidine kinase (dCK) substrate. Phosphorylated to form clofarabine triphosphate, which competes with dATP for DNA polymerase-α and -ε and potently inhibits ribonucleotide reductase (IC50 = 65 nM). Induces apoptosis by directly altering mitochondrial transmembrane potential. Demonstrates growth inhibition and cytotoxic activity in a variety of leukemias and solid tumors.
