A potent inhibitor for eEF2K
Chemical Name: 2-((3,5-dimethyl-4-hydroxyphenyl)-methylene)-4-cyclopentene-1,3-dione
|TX-1918 may be useful as a therapeutic agent for cancer treatment in animal models. A cell-permeable arylidene-cyclopentenedione derived tyrphostin that acts as a potent inhibitor for eukaryotic elongation factor-2 kinase (eEF2K, IC50 = 440 nM). At higher concentrations, TX-1918 has been shown to inhibit other kinases, including proto-oncogene tyrosine-protein kinase Src (c-SRC, IC50 = 4.4 μM), protein kinase A and C (PKA and PKC, IC50 = 44 μM for each), and epidermal growth factor receptor kinase (EGFR-K, IC50 = 440 μM).|
|Solubility:||Soluble in DMSO (10 mg/ml).|
|Storage:||Store at 4° C|
