Cat. No. 3993
Alternative Name: Seocalcitol
Chemical Name: (1R,3S,5Z)-5-[(2E)-2-[(1R,3aS,7aR)-
Biological ActivityVitamin D receptor (VDR) agonist; analog of calcitriol (Cat. No. 2551). Exhibits anti-tumor and anti-proliferative activity with reduced hypercalcemic effects. 60 times more potent in inhibiting MCF-7 cell growth in vitro; also shown to induce autophagy in MCF-7 cells. Reverses the effects of parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP).
