Cat. No. 4396
Chemical Name: 5,6-Dihydro-1-[(2E)-1-oxo-3-(3,4,5-
Biological ActivityInduces cell death and increases the level of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in cancer cells with both wild-type and normal p53. Also inhibits the growth of spontaneous malignant breast tumors in mice. Displays little effect on normal cells. Rapidly depletes androgen receptor expression in human prostate cancer cells via a ROS-dependent, proteasome-mediated mechanism.
