Cat.No. 3868 - CHM 1 | C16H10FNO3 | CAS No. 154554-41-3
Description: Potent antitumor agent; inducer of apoptosis
Chemical Name: 6-(2-Fluorophenyl)-1,3-dioxolo[4,5-g]quinolin-8(5H)-one
Purity: ≥99% (HPLC)

Biological Activity

Inducer of apoptosis; displays potent antitumor ability in human hepatocellular carcinoma. Inhibits tubulin polymerization in vitro and in vivo. Causes cell cycle arrest at G2/M phase by activation of Cdc2 kinase activity. Induces translocation of apoptosis inducing factor (AIF) from the mitochondria to nucleus. Also exhibits vascular targeting activity through upregulation of p53 and induction of death receptor (DR5)-mediated apoptosis in HUVEC cells.

Programmed Cell Death

Programmed Cell Death Poster

There are two currently recognized forms of programmed cell death: apoptosis and necroptosis. This poster summarizes the signaling pathways involved in apoptosis, necroptosis and cell survival following death receptor activation, and highlights the influence of the molecular switch, cFLIP, on cell fate.

Pathways for CHM 1


Apoptosis Signaling Pathway

Apoptosis is a physiological process for cell death that is critical during aging and development. It may also be referred to as cell 'suicide'. Apoptosis can be triggered by events both inside and outside of the cell.
