Fostriecin sodium salt
Potent inhibitor of protein phosphatase types 2A (PP2A) and 4 (PP4) with IC50 values of 1.5 nM and 3 nM respectively. Also exhibits weaker inhibition of topoisomerase II (IC50 = 40 μM) and protein phosphatase type 1 (PP1) (IC50 = 131 μM) with no apparent inhibition of protein phosphatase type 2B (PP2B). Active in vivo. Originally identified as an antitumor antibiotic from Streptomyces pulveraceous.

fostriecin for PP2A/4 (Fos, 1 μM)
HL-1 cardiomyocytes were treated with 100 nM fostriecin, 100 nM Okadaic acid or 50 nM 8-bromo-cAMP for 30 min followed by Western blot analysis for pCaMKII expression. Fostriecin slightly increased phosphorylation of CaMKII; indicating role of PP2A in CaMKII dephosphorylation.
I used fostriecin to investigate the contribution of PP2A to dephosphorylation of my enzyme. I preincubated cells with fostriecin and assayed for enzyme activity.
