Cat.No. 6100 - Fasentin | C11H9ClF3NO2 | CAS No. 392721-37-8
Description: GLUT1/GLUT4 inhibitor; also Fas-sensitizer
Chemical Name: N-(4-Chloro-3-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)-3-oxobutanamide
Purity: ≥98% (HPLC)

Biological Activity

GLUT1 and GLUT4 inhibitor (IC50 = 68 μM). Preferentially inhibits GLUT4 over GLUT1. Sensitizes Fas receptor in a range of tumor cell lines (IC50 = 20 μM) by modulating the extrinsic apoptotic pathway downstream of TNF receptors but upstream of effector caspases.
