Cat. No. 2956
Alternative Name: Picropodophyllin
Chemical Name: (5R,5aS,8aR,9R)-5,8,8a,9-Tetrahydro
Biological ActivityOrally active insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor (IGF1R) inhibitor that exhibits no activity at the insulin receptor, FGFR, PDGFR or EGFR. Inhibits IGF1R autophosphorylation (IC50 ~ 1 nM), increases the fraction of cells in the G2/M phase and upregulates apoptosis. Exhibits antiproliferative effects in multiple cancer cell lines (IC50 = 0.05 - 15 μM), and has anticancer and antineovascularization activity in vivo.
