NB001 may be used in adenylyl cyclase 1-mediated cell signaling studies.


5, 25 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

NB001, originally believed to be a selective inhibitor of adenylyl cyclase 1 (AC1), new evidence suggests NB001 does not interact with AC1 directly. NB001 may reduce cAMP accumulation in cells through an unknown mechanism that is dependent on AC1.

Cyclic nucleotides, including cyclic AMP (cAMP), cyclic GMP (cGMP) and cyclic ADP-ribose, have been extensively studied as second messengers of intracellular events initiated by activation of GPCRs. cAMP modifies cell function in all eukaryotic cells, principally through the activation of cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA), but also through cAMP-gated ion channels and guanine nucleotide exchange factors directly activated by cAMP.
