CAS#: 1164470-53-4

Description: SAL-003 is a cell-permeable inhibitor of eIF2α dephosphorylation. SAL003 is an Analog of salubrinal (Cat. No. 2347) with improved aqueous solubility. Sal003‑mediated upregulation of eIF2α phosphorylation suppressed cisplatin‑induced p53 activation. Furthermore, reduction of eIF2α phosphorylation by PERK knockdown enhanced cisplatin-induced p53 activation and apoptosis.

Additional Information

Cisplatin is one of the most widely used chemotherapeutic agents for the treatment of human cancers. However, the nephrotoxicity of cisplatin limits its use as a therapeutic agent. It has been suggested that oxidative stress and p53 activation play important roles in cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity. It has been demonstrated that the eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2α (eIF2α) may protect HK-2 human renal proximal tubular cells against cisplatin-induced apoptosis through inhibition of reactive oxygen species (ROS)‑mediated p53 activation.
