Description (+)-Aphidicolin
Supplier Adipogen Life Sciences
Notes Phytotoxin. Antibiotic. Antiviral and antineoplastic agent. Antileishmanial agent. Reversible inhibitor of eukaryotic nuclear DNA replication. Useful for cell synchronization. Blocks the cell cycle at G1/S phase. Prolongs the half life of DNA methyltransferase. DNA methylation/demethylation modulator. Specific DNA polymerase alpha and delta inhibitor in eukaryotic cells and in some viruses of animal origin. Acts synergistically with vincristine and doxorubicin. Apoptosis inhibitor/inducer.
Molecular Formula C20H34O4
Alias Names NSC234714; BRN4689958; ICI69653
