Cat. No. 2668
Alternative Name: Qinghaosu
Chemical Name: (3R,5aS,6R,8aS,9R,12S,12aR)-Octahyd
Biological ActivityAntimalarial agent; interacts with heme to produce carbon-centred free radicals, causes protein alkylation and damages parasite microorganelles and membranes. Also selectively inhibits the P-type ATPase (PfATP6) of Plasmodium falciparum (Ki ~ 150 nM). Displays antiangiogenic effects in mouse embryonic stem cell-derived embryoid bodies.
