MedKoo CAT#: 406144

Description: NVP-231 is a potent, specific, and reversible CerK inhibitor that competitively inhibits binding of ceramide to CerK. NVP-231 is active in the low nanomolar range on purified as well as cellular CerK and abrogates phosphorylation of ceramide, resulting in decreased endogenous C1P levels. When combined with another ceramide metabolizing inhibitor, such as tamoxifen, NVP-231 synergistically increased ceramide levels and reduced cell growth. Therefore, NVP-231 represents a novel and promising compound for controlling ceramide metabolism that may provide insight into CerK physiological function.
