Fostriecin sodium salt
Cat. No. 1840
Chemical Name: (6R)-5,6-Dihydro-6-[(1E,3R,4R,6R,7Z
Biological ActivityPotent inhibitor of protein phosphatase types 2A (PP2A) and 4 (PP4) with IC50 values of 1.5 nM and 3 nM respectively. Also exhibits weaker inhibition of topoisomerase II (IC50 = 40 μM) and protein phosphatase type 1 (PP1) (IC50 = 131 μM) with no apparent inhibition of protein phosphatase type 2B (PP2B). Active in vivo. Originally identified as an antitumor antibiotic from Streptomyces pulveraceous.
