Biological Activity for Ginkgolic Acid

Ginkgolic Acid is an inhibitor of SUMOylation (IC50 = 3 μM). Directly binds E1 and inhibits formation of E1-SUMO intermediate. Protects against amyloid β-induced impairment of neurotransmission and synaptic plasticity. Also suppresses CD44 and MMP14 expression in breast cancer cells, eliminating cancer stem cells and inhibiting tumorigenesis.
