Biological Activity for JW 55
JW 55 is an inhibitor of the PARP domain of tankyrase 1 and 2 (TNKS1/2). Activity results in stabilization of Axin2 and increased degradation of β-catenin; inhibits the β-catenin signaling pathway. Also shown to decrease canonical Wnt signaling in SW480 and HCT-15 colon carcinoma cell lines; reduces cell cycle progression and proliferation in SW480 cells in vitro.
