Biological Activity for Bax channel blocker

Bax channel blocker is a allosteric inhibitor of Bax channel activation. Binds inactive Bax at allosteric site and inhibits tBID-mediated Bax activation (IC50 = 3.3 μM). Selectively inhibits Bax-dependent apoptosis. Potent inhibitor of Bax-mediated mitochondrial cytochrome c release (IC50 = 0.52 μM).
