Cat. No. 1571
Alternative Names: Elatericin B, JSI 124
Chemical Name: (9β,10α,16α,23E)-2,16,20,25-Tetrahydro
Biological ActivitySelective inhibitor of STAT3/JAK2 signaling. Inhibits the activation of STAT3 and JAK2 and displays no activity on Src, Akt, ERK and JNK. Suppresses phosphotyrosine levels of STAT3, inhibits STAT3 DNA binding and STAT3-mediated gene expression. Induces apoptosis in cell lines expressing constitutively active tyrosine-phosphorylated STAT3.
