Inhibitor of checkpoint kinase 1 (Chk1) that displays selectivity over other protein kinases (IC50 values are 15, 250 and 1000 nM for Chk1, cdc2 and PKC respectively). Abrogates G2 cell cycle arrest caused by γ-irradiation and topoisomerase I inhibition. Potentiates cytotoxicity of DNA-damaging drugs, enhancing the efficacy of some chemotherapeutics.

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.
