Inhibitor of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) (IC50 = 9.5 μM); displays mixed inhibition with respect to NAD+. Protective against ischemia-reperfusion induced ROS production, and subsequent mitochondrial and cell damage in rat heart. Anti-inflammatory in LPS-induced endotoxic mice in vivo; decreases NF-κB and AP-1 activation.

Cell Cycle & DNA Damage Repair Poster
In normal cells, each stage of the cell cycle is tightly regulated, however in cancer cells many genes and proteins that are involved in the regulation of the cell cycle are mutated or over expressed. Adapted from the 2015 Cancer Product Guide, Edition 3, this poster summarizes the stages of the cell cycle and DNA repair. It also highlights strategies for enhancing replicative stress in cancer cells to force mitotic catastrophe and cell death.
