Biological Activity for ABT 737

ABT 737 is a high affinity Bcl-2 family inhibitor (Ki ≤ 1nM for Bcl-XL, Bcl-2 and Bcl-w). BH3 mimetic; triggers Bax/Bak-mediated apoptosis. Exhibits cytotoxicity in lymphoma cell lines overexpressing bcl-2 (EC50 < 1 μM) and multiple myeloma cells (IC50 = 5-15 μM). Induces apoptosis in patient-derived CLL cells. Promotes regression of SCLC tumors in a mouse xenograft model. Synergizes with certain other anticancer agents.

Apoptosis Signaling Pathway

Apoptosis Signaling Pathway

Apoptosis is a physiological process for cell death that is critical during aging and development. It may also be referred to as cell 'suicide'. Apoptosis can be triggered by events both inside and outside of the cell.
