Alternative Name: NN-DNJ

Chemical Name: (2R,3R,4R,5S)-2-(Hydroxymethyl)-1-nonyl-3,4,5-piperidinetriol

Biological Activity

Glucosidase inhibitor (IC50 values are 0.42 and 8.4 μM for acid α-glucosidase and α-1,6-glucosidase respectively). Inhibits liver glycogen breakdown in vivo. Also acts as a chemical chaperone; chaperones β-Glu folding at neutral p.H. allowing the stabilized enzyme to transit from the endoplasmic reticulum to the golgi, enabling proper trafficking to the lysosome.

Technical Data

Soluble to 100 mM in DMSO and to 100 mM in ethanol
Store at -20°C
