Chemical Name: (3S)-6,7-Dimethoxy-3-[(5R)-5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-4-methoxy-6-methyl-1,3-dioxolo[4,5-g]isoquinolin-5-yl]-1(3H)-isobenzofuranone hydrochloride

Biological Activity

Opioid alkaloid with several actions. Binds to tubulin, arrests cells in mitosis and induces apoptosis. Antagonist at bradykinin receptors (pA2 = 6.68), inhibits carbachol-stimulated phosphoinositol turnover and enhances forskolin-stimulated cAMP increases in CNS tissues. Modulates IKK activation, suppressing the NF-κB signaling pathway. Blocks proliferation of human leukemia and multiple myeloma cells. Exhibits anti-inflammatory activity.

Technical Data

Soluble to 50 mM in 1eq. HCl
>99 %
Desiccate at RT
