Descripción general

Cantharidin is a poisonous vesicant, which is produced by blister bees. It is used to treat piles, ulcers, venomous worms and tuberculous scrofuloderma. It is used as an aphrodisiac, abortifacient and a veterinary medicine diuretic.


Cantharidin has been used to inhibit protein phosphatase 2 (PP2A).

To investigate molecular mechanisms controlling plant morphogenesis, we examined the morphology of primary roots of Arabidopsis thaliana and the organization of cortical microtubules in response to inhibitors of serine/threonine protein phosphatases and kinases. We found that cantharidin, an inhibitor of

Norcantharidin (3) is a potent PP1 (IC(50)=9.0+/-1.4 microM) and PP2A (IC(50)=3.0+/-0.4 microM) inhibitor with 3-fold PP2A selectivity and induces growth inhibition (GI(50) approximately 45 microM) across a range of human cancer cell lines including those of colorectal (HT29, SW480), breast

Cantharidin (1) and norcantharidin (2) are potent protein phosphatase 1 and 2A inhibitors that also display high levels of anticancer activity against a broad range of tumor cells lines. Surprisingly, Delta-5,6-ethyl norcantharidin (3, cis-tetrahydrofurano[3,4-c]furan-1,3-dione) displays neither phosphatase inhibition nor anticancer

Cantharidin, a type of terpenoid secreted by the blister beetle Mylabris phalerata (Pallas), has attracted great attention in cancer therapy because of its potential anti-cancer activities. Here, we report the effects on apoptosis and autophagy in human triple-negative breast cancer

A range of amines was reacted with norcantharidin (2) to provide the corresponding norcantharimides (9-43). Treatment of norcantharidin with allylamine afforded the corresponding allyl-norcantharimide (20) which was amenable to epoxidation (mCPBA, 22) and subsequent ring opening (MeOH/H(+); 23) or alternatively
