Biological Activity for CHC

CHC is a monocarboxylic acid transport (MCT) inhibitor. Exhibits antitumoral and antiangiogenic activity in gliomas in vivo; decreases glycolytic metabolism, migration, and invasion in U251 cells. Enhances the effect of antitumor agent temozolomide (Cat No. 2706). Blocks lactate efflux from glioma cells and sensitizes cells to irradiation.

Compound Libraries for CHC

CHC is also offered as part of the Tocriscreen 2.0 Max. Find out more about compound libraries available from Tocris.
