Cat. No. 4514
Chemical Name: N-[4-[[[[Tetrahydro-4-(4-methoxyphe
Biological ActivityInhibitor of the PARP domain of tankyrase 1 and 2 (TNKS1/2). Activity results in stabilization of Axin2 and increased degradation of β-catenin; inhibits the β-catenin signaling pathway. Also shown to decrease canonical Wnt signaling in SW480 and HCT-15 colon carcinoma cell lines; reduces cell cycle progression and proliferation in SW480 cells in vitro.
