Chemical Name: 4-Amino-5,8-dihydro-5-oxo-8-β-D-ribofuranosyl-pyrido[2,3-d]pyrimidine-6-carboxamide

Biological Activity

Akt/protein kinase B (PKB) inhibitor. Binds the pleckstrin homology domain of Akt and blocks Akt membrane translocation. Inhibits EGF-induced kinase activity of Akt1, Akt2 and Akt3. Induces cell growth arrest and apoptosis in human cancer cells expressing constitutively active Akt. Displays antitumor activity in vitro and in vivo.
