CAAZ peptidomimetic geranylgeranyltransferase I (GGTase I) inhibitor. Strongly inhibits the processing of geranylgeranylated Rap1A with little effect on processing of farnesylated Ha-Ras (IC50 values are 3 and > 10 μM respectively). Causes G0-G1 cell cycle block and apoptosis in A549 cells and inhibits cell invasion and migration in COLO 320CM cells.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 593.66. Batch specific molecular weights may vary from batch to batch due to solvent of hydration, which will affect the solvent volumes required to prepare stock solutions.
|Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass||1 mg||5 mg||10 mg|
|1 mM||1.68 mL||8.42 mL||16.84 mL|
|5 mM||0.34 mL||1.68 mL||3.37 mL|
|10 mM||0.17 mL||0.84 mL||1.68 mL|
|50 mM||0.03 mL||0.17 mL||0.34 mL|
