SML1081   Ezatiostat ≥98% (HPLC) Ezatiostat is an inhibitor of glutathione S-transferase P1-1 (GSTP1-1). After intracellular de-esterification, the active form of ezatiostat binds to and inhibits GST P1-1, leading to activation of Jun kinase (JNK), a key regulator of cellular growth and differentiation of blood precursor cells, thereby restoring JNK and MAPK pathway activities and promoting MAPK-mediated cellular proliferation and differentiation. Ezatiostat promotes the proliferation and maturation of hematopoietic precursor cells, granulocytes, monocytes, erythrocytes and platelets. Ezatiostat has recently been given orphan drug designation for it for the treatment of myelodysplastic syndrome.
