Description: Protein kinase C activator
Chemical Name: (1S,3S,5Z,7R,8E,11S,12S,13E,15S,17R,21R,23R,25S)-1,11,21,25-Tetrahydroxy-17-[(1R)-1-hydroxyethyl]-5,13-bis(2-methoxy-2-oxoethylidene)-10,10,26,26-tetramethyl-19-oxo-18,27,28,29-tetraoxatetracyclo[,7.111,15]nonacos-8-en-12-yl-(2E,4E)-2,4-octadienoic acid ester
Purity: ≥98%

Biological Activity

Protein kinase C (PKC) activator; analog of Bryostatin 1 (Cat. No. 2383). Attenuates cell proliferation and cell attachment in U937 cells. Inhibits DNA synthesis at 100 nM in SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma cells. Also inhibits EGF binding and induces arachidonic acid release in vitro. Antitumor.
