Biological Activity for FK 866

FK 866 is a non-competitive and high-affinity inhibitor of NAMPT (nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase, PBEF1) (Ki = 0.3 nM); inhibits NAD biosynthesis. Induces delayed cell death by apoptosis in HepG2 human liver carcinoma cells (IC50 ~1 nM). Induces apoptosis in four different neuroblastoma cell lines; also induces autophagy in SH-SY5Y cells. Potentiates the cytotoxic effects induced by Etoposide (Cat. No. 1226) and Cisplatin (Cat. No. 2251).

I used FK 866 in 10–50 nM concentrations for 24-72 hours and noted significant differences in cellular NAD level and cell growth.

Treat this drug for 72 hours for best results.
