|Product Specification Sheet|
- Antibiotic .
- Shows antiviral, antifungal and antitumor properties [1, 2].
- Immunosuppressive drug used to prevent rejection in organ transplantation, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriasis [3-6, 13].
- Potent reversible inhibitor of inosine-5'-monophosphate dehydrogenase (IMPDH), leading to depletion of GMP and interruption of the de novo synthesis of purine nucleotides necessary for B and T lymphocyte proliferation [7, 8].
- Inhibits the type II IMPDH isoform (IMPDH-2) 5-fold more potently compared to type I isoform .
- Inhibits RNA and DNA synthesis .
- Inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS/NOS II) inhibitor [8, 10].
- Apoptosis and necrosis inducer [9, 12].
- Novel type of inhibitor against RNA guanylyltransferases .
- Inhibits TNF-α-stimulated MAPK/NF-κB and ROS generation .
- Autophagy suppressor.
- Broad-spectrum antiviral compound with inhibitory activity against different coronavirus, including SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2, cause of COVID-19. It binds to the active site of SARS-CoV-2 papain-like protease (PLpro) possibly inhibiting viral replication.
