  • Selective apoptosis inducer in ras-dependent cells.
  • Autophagy (Akt-dependent), apoptosis and necroptosis inducer in renal cancer cell lines.
  • Induces death of ras-mutated pancreatic tumor (Panc-1) cells in vitro and in vivo.
  • Robust inhibitor of pancreatic cancers with the K-ras mutation. Reduced Sos1 expression and depressed Ras-MAPK activity.
