Cat.No. 5407 - GA3-AM | C22H26O8 | CAS No. 1373154-68-7
Description: Gibberellin-analog (GA3) chemical dimerizer; cell permeable
Chemical Name: (1S,2S,4aR,4bR,7S,9aS,10S,10aR)-1,2,4b,5,6,7,8,9,10,10a-Decahydro-2,7-dihydroxy-1-methyl-8-methylene-13-oxo-4a,1-(epoxymethano)-7,9a-methanobenz[a]azulene-10-acetic acid (acetyloxy)methyl ester
Purity: ≥90% (HPLC)

Biological Activity

Gibberellin-analog (GA3) chemical dimerizer; induces rapid dimerization of GAIs and GID1. GA3-AM crosses the plasma membrane, is cleaved by cytosolic esterase releasing GA3, which then binds GID1- this complex then in turn forms a complex with GAI; this system works on a timescale of seconds (EC50 = 310 nM). GA3 and rapamycin (Cat. No. 1292) chemically inducible dimerization systems are orthogonal. Cell permeable.
