Biological Activity for Alexidine dihydrochloride

Alexidine dihydrochloride is a selective inhibitor of protein tyrosine phosphatases localized to mitochondrion 1 (PTPMT1) (IC50 = 1.08 μM in vitro). Stimulates increased insulin secretion by β-cells in rat pancreatic islets. Displays antitcancer properties in FaDu cells. Also preserves functional hematopoietic stem cells ex vivo.
