Cell-permeable reactive oxygen species scavenger that activates p53 through a JNK-dependent signaling pathway. Activates p21waf-1 and MDM2, represses transcription of Myc and thymidine kinase, and inhibits DNA topoisomerase IIα. Induces cell cycle arrest and exhibits cytoprotective activity towards normal cells but not cancer cells in vivo. Also exhibits broad spectrum antiviral activity in vitro.

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.
