General description

A cell permeable antitumor and anti-inflammatory agent that acts as an inhibitor of 5-lipoxygenase (IC50 = 8 µM) and cyclooxygenase (IC50 = 52 µM). Confers significant protection against neurotoxic and genotoxic agents. Also inhibits the induction of nitric oxide synthase in activated macrophages (IC50 = 6 µM). Recently shown to inhibit the EGF receptor intrinsic kinase activity in the human epidermoid carcinoma A431 cells in a dose- and time-dependent manner. Also shown to be a p300/CREB-binding protein-specific inhibitor of histone acetyltransferase, inhibiting the acetylation of histones H3 and H4 with an

IC50 of ~25 µM. Does not affect p300/CREB binding protein-associated factor (PCAF).

Currently there is great interest in targeting mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) in cancer. However, notwithstanding the targeting of mutant dehydrogenases, nearly all hopeful 'mito-therapeutics' cannot discriminate cancerous from non-cancerous OXPHOS and thus suffer from a limited therapeutic index.
