Description

General description

This product has been discontinued.



A cell-permeable tetracyclic quinone compound that acts as a specific, reversible, and non-competitive inhibitor of CerK (ceramide kinase) activity (IC50 = ~5 µM) with little effect against SPHK1/2 or DGKγ (IC50 > 100 µM). Shown to reduce cellular C1P (ceramide-1-phosphate) synthesis by 40% at ≥ 20 µM in a rat basophilic leukemia cell line RBL-2H3 and block CerK-mediated degranulation in both RBL-2H3 and murine BMMC (bone marrow-derived mast cells) in a dose-dependent manner. Exhibits no cytotoxic effect against RBL-2H3 even at concentrations as high as 100 µM.
