Description: NSC-95397 is a novel CDC25B inhibitor, inhibiting influenza A virus replication in dose-dependent fashion. NSC95397 prevents the CtBP1-Protein Partner Interaction and CtBP1-Mediated Transcriptional Repression. NSC-95397 triggers apoptosis of tumor cells and is thus considered for the treatment of malignancy.
