Ferrostatin 1

Pricing Availability Delivery Time Qty
Cat.No. 5180 - Ferrostatin 1 | C15H22N2O2 | CAS No. 347174-05-4
Description: Selective inhibitor of erastin induced ferroptosis
Chemical Name: Ethyl 3-amino-4-(cyclohexylamino)benzoate
Purity: ≥98% (HPLC)

Biological Activity

Selective inhibitor of erastin induced ferroptosis (EC50 = 60 nM). Specifically inhibits Ras selective lethal compound -induced death, but not cell death induced by other oxidative lethal compounds and apoptosis-inducing agents. Inhibits ferroptosis in cancer cells; also inhibits glutamate-induced cell death in organotypic rat brain slices. Prevents erastin induced accumulation of cytosolic and lipid reactive oxygen species.

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 Ferrostatin 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.
