Biological Activity for Furamidine dihydrochloride

Furamidine dihydrochloride is a selective protein arginine methyltransferase 1 (PRMT1) inhibitor (IC50 = 9.4 μM). Exhibits selectivity over PRMT5, PRMT6 and CARM1 (IC50 values are 166, 283 and >400 μM respectively). Inhibits tyrosyl-DNA phosphodiesterase 1 (TDP-1) (IC50 = 1.2 μM). Inhibits cell proliferation in leukemia cell lines, suppresses neuroblastoma tumor growth, and reduces mis-splicing in in vitro and in vivo models of myotonic dystrophy type 1. Also shows dose-dependent inhibition of platelet aggregation (IC50 = 14.8 uM). Cell-permeable.
