NSC 109555 ditosylate
Selective, reversible, ATP-competitive Chk2 inhibitor (IC50 = 0.2 μM) that displays no effect on a range of other kinases including Chk1 (IC50 > 10 μM). Inhibits histone H1 phosphorylation (IC50 = 0.24 μM) and attenuates mitochondrial ATP synthesis. Exhibits antiproliferative activity in a number of leukemias in vivo.

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.
