Exhibits antiproliferative and pro-apoptotic effects in carcinoma cells and displays cytotoxic activity against a panel of 60 cancer cell lines (mean IC50 = 47 nM). Activity decreases rate of cell division and increases mitosis duration in vitro. Also modulates the Rho/ROCK/LIM kinase/cofilin pathway; stimulates RhoA activation and induces actin polymerization.

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.
