Biological Activity for Mycophenolate mofetil

Mycophenolate mofetil is an immunosuppressant prodrug of mycophenolic acid (MPA) (Cat. No. 1505). Hydrolyzed by esterases to release MPA, a reversible inhibitor of inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase (IMPDH). Used to prevent organ rejection after transplantation. Displays inhibitory activity of lymphocyte functions. Inhibits type 1 collagen expression, enhances MMP-1 expression, and reduces α-smooth muscle actin gene expression.
