|Product Specification Sheet|
- Mammalian antibacterial metabolite.
- Inhibitor of isocitrate lyase, the key enzyme of the glyoxylate cycle, essential for bacterial growth [1, 4].
- Antimicrobial. Antibacterial [1, 3, 4].
- Inhibits the growth of bacteria expressing isocitrate lyase [1, 3, 4].
- Phosphofructokinase (PFKII) inhibitor. Suppresses glycolysis by decreasing the level of fructose 2,6-bisphosphate, resulting in decreased visceral fat .
- Might be involved in the regulation of metabolism .
- One of the most highly induced metabolites in activated macrophages.
- Exerts anti-inflammatory effects in vitro and in vivo.
- Regulates succinate levels by inhibiting succinate dehydrogenase (SDH).
- Regulates mitochondrial respiration and cytokine production.
- Might induce inflammasome activation and consequently IL-1β secretion by generating ROS.
