General description

A convenient ready-to-use form of Cycloheximide (Cat. No. 239763). An anti-fungal antibiotic that inhibits protein synthesis in eukaryotes but not in prokaryotes. Interacts directly with the translocase enzyme, interfering with the translocation step. Also inhibits cell-free protein synthesis in eukaryotes. Competitively inhibits hFKBP12 (Ki = 3.4 µM). Triggers apoptosis in HL-60 cells, T-cell hybridomas, Burkitt′s lymphoma cells, and a variety of other cell types, including rodent macrophages. Induces DNA fragmentation in macrophages, but inhibits DNA cleavage in rat thymocytes treated with thapsigargin, methylprednisolone, and ionomycin. Rapidly destroyed in alkaline solutions.
