Discontinued Product2-Methoxyestradiol (Cat. No. 1807) has been withdrawn from sale for commercial reasons.
Biological Activity for 2-Methoxyestradiol
2-Methoxyestradiol is an apoptotic, antiproliferative and antiangiogenic agent, in vitro and in vivo; acts via an estrogen receptor-independent mechanism. Induces p53-induced apoptosis via two pathways: activation of p38 and NF-κB; and activation of JNK and AP-1 leading to Bcl-2 phosphorylation. Also upregulates death receptor 5 and binds to tubulin, inhibiting its assembly.

Programmed Cell Death Poster
There are two currently recognized forms of programmed cell death: apoptosis and necroptosis. This poster summarizes the signaling pathways involved in apoptosis, necroptosis and cell survival following death receptor activation, and highlights the influence of the molecular switch, cFLIP, on cell fate.
