Biological Activity for BGP 15

BGP 15 is a PARP inhibitor (IC50 = 120 μM). Displays cytoprotective effects in various disease models: decreases ROS levels, lipid peroxidation and single-strand DNA breaks in isolated reperfused rat hearts; improves mitochondrial function and protects against neuronal cell death in a mouse model of familial dysautonomia. BGP 15 also activates HSP70 in rodent skeletal muscle, increasing oxidative capacity and improving insulin sensitivity.

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. 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.
