Type II DNA topoisomerase inhibitor. Disrupts DNA synthesis and repair and induces damage by DNA cross-linking. Also inhibits PIM1 kinase (IC50 = 51 nM). Immunomodulatory, antineoplastic and chemotherapeutic agent. Also USP11 inhibitor (IC50= 3.15 μM). Induces cell death of pancreatic cancer cell lines expressing wild-type BRCA2.

Cell Cycle & DNA Damage Repair Poster
In normal cells, each stage of the cell cycle is tightly regulated, however in cancer cells many genes and proteins that are involved in the regulation of the cell cycle are mutated or over expressed. Adapted from the 2015 Cancer Product Guide, Edition 3, this poster summarizes the stages of the cell cycle and DNA repair. It also highlights strategies for enhancing replicative stress in cancer cells to force mitotic catastrophe and cell death.
