Description

Application

Monastrol has been used:
• to treat MDA-MB-231 cells as a non-microtubule-targeting agent
• as a antineoplastic agent, to treat mouse myeloma cell line SP 2/0, to induce apoptosis and to elucidate the role of metabotropic glutamate receptor 3 (Grm3) in apoptosis
• as an inhibitor of pteridine reductase in GFP-transfected promastigotes infected macrophages for flow cytometer-based growth inhibition assay and to evaluate anti-leishmanial activity of Leishmania donovani hamster model in vivo

Packaging

1, 5 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Monastrol is a potent, cell-permeant inhibitor of mitosis. Monastrol arrested cells are characterized by monopolar spindles. This phenotype is induced through specific disruption of mitotic molecular motor kinesin Eg5 with IC50 at 14 μM. No effect on other motor proteins and tubulin.
