MedKoo CAT#: 407955

CAS#: 939055-18-2 (free base)

Description: FIPI is a potent and selective phospholipase D inhibitor. FIPI attenuate mercury-induced lipid signaling leading to protection against cytotoxicity in aortic endothelial cells. FIPI rapidly blocks in vivo PA production with subnanomolar potency. FIPI may be a potential therapeutic for autoimmunity and cancer metastasis.
