S1875 (−)-Scopolamine hydrobromide trihydrate ≥98% (HPLC), powder Competitive nonselective muscarinic acetylcholine antagonist. Scopolamine-induced amnesia in laboratory animals is a commonly-used model of memory deficit.
A0966 4-Amino-1,8-naphthalimide 4-Amino-1,8-naphthalimide sensitizes cells to radiation-induced cell damage and enhances the cytotoxicity of 1-methyl-3-nitro-1-nitrosoguanidine.
A5922 Amifostine trihydrate ≥97% (TLC), powder Radioprotective agent. Selectively protects normal tissues from the damaging effects of anti-neoplastic radiation therapy. Selectivity is due to preferential uptake by normal tissues and subsequent metabolic activation to 2-(3-aminopropyl)aminoethanethiol.
B7651 Brefeldin A from Penicillium brefeldianum, ≥99% (HPLC and TLC) Brefeldin A (BFA) is a fungal metabolite which disrupts the structure and function of the Golgi apparatus. BFA is an activator of the sphingomyelin cycle. Brefeldin A-mediated apoptosis has been observed in human tumor cells.
Brefeldin A has been shown to increase CRISPR-mediated homology-directed repair (HDR) efficiency.
C4522 Cimetidine H2 histamine receptor antagonist; I1 imidazoline receptor agonist; anti-ulcer agent. Blocks cancer metastasis by inhibiting the expression of E-selectin on the surface of endothelial cells, thus blocking tumor cell adhesion.
L2662   Lectin from Viscum album (European mistletoe) lyophilized powder VAA is not blood group specific, but has an affinity for terminal β-D-galactosyl residues. VAA inhibits protein synthesis similarly to Ricin (RCA60) and inhibits allergen induced histamine release in vitro from human leukocytes.
L0399   Leuprolide acetate salt ≥98% (HPLC) Glp-His-Trp-Ser-Tyr-Leu-Leu-Arg-Pro-NHEt (des-Gly10-[D-Leu6]-LH-RH) is a GnRH (gonadotropin-releasing hormone) agonist, leuprolide. GnRH (Glp-His-Trp-Ser-Tyr-Gly-Leu-Arg-Pro-Gly-NH2), which is also referred as LHRH (luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone) or gonadorelin, is crucial for mammalian reproduction and is released from hypothalamic neurons. It is responsible for the secretion of gonadotropins, luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), from the pituitary glands. Mutations in GnRH are associated with normosmic congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. Low concentration of leuprolide can be used for the treatment of endometriosis, uterine fibroids, central precocious puberty and advanced prostate cancer.
L7134 Luteinizing hormone releasing hormone human acetate salt ≥98% (HPLC), powder Hypothalamic peptide that stimulates release of gonadotrophins from anterior pituitary, thus regulating reproductive functions.
P3510 Papaverine hydrochloride powder Smooth muscle relaxant and cerebral vasodilator; phosphodiesterase inhibitor.
P5396 Phosphomycin disodium salt antibacterial MurA inhibitor Antibiotic that concentrates in kidney and bladder; reduces nephrotoxicity and ototoxicity of platinum-containing anti-tumor agents. Fosfomycin is a phosphoenolpyruvate analog that irreversibly inhibits UDP-GlcNAc enolpyruvyl tranferase (MurA), an enzyme involved in bacterial cell wall biosynthesis. As a result, the production of N-acetylmuramic acid, an essential element of the peptidoglycan cell wall, is inhibited.
P4359 Pifithrin-α ≥95% (HPLC), powder Pifithrin-α is a reversible inhibitor of p53-mediated apoptosis and p53-dependent gene transcription such as cyclin G, p21/waf1, and mdm2 expression. Pifithrin-α enhances cell survival after genotoxic stress such as UV irradiation and treatment with cytotoxic compounds including doxorubicin, etopoxide, paclitaxel, and cytosine-β-D-arabinofuranoside. Pifithrin-α protects mice from lethal whole body γ-irradiation without an increase in cancer incidence. The protective effect is not seen in p53-null mice or cells expressing a dominant negative mutant of the p53 gene. Protection is conferred by the transient expression of p53 in p53-deficient cell lines.
T9033 Thapsigargin ≥98% (HPLC), solid film Potent, cell-permeable, IP3-independent intracellular calcium releaser. Blocks the transient increase in intracellular Ca2+ induced by angiostatin and endostatin. Induces apoptosis by disrupting intracellular free Ca2+ levels; incorporated into chemotherapeutic prodrug formulations.
L9761 [D-Trp6]-LH-RH ≥97% (HPLC), powder Potent LH-RH agonist with enhanced biological activity due to its slower rate of degradation. Like [D-Lys6]-LH-RH, the D-Trp6 analog has been shown to be effective against cancers expressing the LH-RH receptor. However, unlike the D-Lys6 analog, it is generally used in the unconjugated form.
