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

MedKoo CAT#: 406252

CAS#: 41276-02-2 (TIC10 isomer)

Description: TIC10 isomer is an isomer and the "inactive version" of TIC10. TIC-10 isomer was introduced to the research community since it was structurally wrong-assigned as the bioactive TIC-10 during early stage development of TIC-10 (now called ONC-201). TIC-10 isomer was found to be inactive, which did not reduce the viability of cancer cells. TIC-10 isomer may be used as a reference compound to compare with ONC-201.

Additional Information

 ONC-201 is an orally bioavailable inhibitor of the serine/threonine protein kinase Akt (protein kinase B) and extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK), with potential antineoplastic activity. Upon administration, Akt/ERK inhibitor ONC201 binds to and inhibits the activity of Akt and ERK, which may result in inhibition of the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt signal transduction pathway as well as the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK)/ERK-mediated pathway. This may lead to the induction of tumor cell apoptosis mediated by tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL)/TRAIL death receptor type 5 (DR5) signaling in AKT/ERK-overexpressing tumor cells. The PI3K/Akt signaling pathway and MAPK/ERK pathway are upregulated in a variety of tumor cell types and play a key role in tumor cell proliferation, differentiation and survival by inhibiting apoptosis. In addition, ONC201 is able to cross the blood-brain barrier.
