Originally reported to be a selective PFKFB3 inhibitor (IC50 = 207 nM); a more recent report failed to demonstrate activity in a PFKFB3 kinase assay. Selective for PFKFB3 over a panel of 96 kinases. Reduces glucose uptake and induces apoptosis in H522 lung adenocarcinoma and Jurkat T cell leukemia cells. Suppresses glucose uptake and tumor growth, and inhibits metastasis of Lewis lung carcinoma cell xenografts in mice.

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.
Programmed Cell Death Poster
There are two currently recognized forms of programmed cell death: apoptosis and necroptosis. This poster summarizes the signaling pathways involved in apoptosis, necroptosis and cell survival following death receptor activation, and highlights the influence of the molecular switch, cFLIP, on cell fate.
