  • Anticancer agent that can inhibit cell growth, induce apoptosis, autophagy and cell cycle arrest, inhibit cell invasion and shows anti-angiogenic activity.
  • OXPHOS inhibitor. Mitochondrial uncoupler that depolarizes the mitochondrial membrane potential, reduces cellular ATP levels, activates 5'-AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) and affects mitochondrial production of reactive oxygen species (ROS).
  • Useful for immunometabolism research.
  • Potent activator of multiple Ca2+-sensitive K+ channels. Naturally occurring hERG channel activator. Antioxidant and ROS scavanger. Might have cardioprotective effects.
  • Has been widely used as a selective inhibitor of protein kinase Cδ (PKCδ) (IC50=3-6µM), although there has been controversy in the literature over this claim.
  • Inhibits CAM kinase III and a wide range of other kinases and non-kinase proteins in vitro. Most potently inhibits PRAK and MAPKAP-K2.
  • Induces autophagy by inhibition of mTORC1 signaling.
  • Displays neuroprotective effects.
