Liarozole

    WARNING: This product is for research use only, not for human or veterinary use.

MedKoo CAT#: 205976

CAS#: 115575-11-6

Description: Liarozole is a benzimidazole derivative with potential antineoplastic activity. As a retinoic acid metabolism blocking agent (RAMBA), liarozole inhibits cytochrome P450-dependent all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA)-4-hydroxylase, resulting in an increase in endogenous ATRA production, inhibition of cell proliferation, and induction of cell differentiation. This agent also inhibits aromatase, the enzyme that catalyzes the final, rate-limiting step in estrogen biosynthesis. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent.
