Cat. No. 5294
Chemical Name: 4-Methyl-5-(2-pyrazinyl)-3H-1,2-dit
Biological ActivityNrf2 activator; activates Nrf, which binds to antioxidant response elements (AREs) and induces Phase-I and -II drug-metabolizing enzymes including CYP2B and NQO1. Also increases mRNA levels of multiple hepatic xenobiotic transporters. Elevates expression of genes encoding anti-oxidant and multidrug resistance-associated proteins. Displays chemopreventive activity.
