Biological Activity for Perifosine

Perifosine is a PKB/Akt inhibitor; accumulates in and reorganizes lipid rafts disrupting Akt signaling. Also inhibits MAPK pathway and induces autophagy. Induces apoptosis in leukemia cell lines. Decreases Kv2.1 current amplitude by modulating its inactivation gating. Antitumor. Orally bioavailable.
