Chemical Name: 3-(3-Pyridinyl)-1-(4-pyridinyl)-2-propen-1-one

Biological Activity

PFKFB3 (6-phosphofructo-2-kinase/fructose-2,6-bisphosphatase) inhibitor; reduces glycolytic flux and suppresses glucose uptake. Inhibits endothelial cell proliferation and causes G2/M cell cycle arrest in vitro. Attenuates vessel sprouting and tumor growth in vivo. Amplifies the antiangiogenic effect of VEGFR blockade.

Technical Data

Soluble to 100 mM in DMSO
>99 %
Store at -20°C
