CAS#: 465-16-7

Description: Oleandrin, also known as PBI-05204 , is a lipid soluble cardiac glycoside with potential antineoplastic activity. Upon administration, oleandrin specifically binds to and inhibits the alpha3 subunit of the Na/K-ATPase pump in human cancer cells. This may inhibit the phosphorylation of Akt, upregulate MAPK, inhibit NF-kb activation and inhibit FGF-2 export and may downregulate mTOR thereby inhibiting p70S6K and S6 protein expression. All of this may lead to an induction of apoptosis.

Additional Information

Application: Detection in biological specimens
Oleander extracts have been used as an instrument for both suicidal and homicidal poisonings. Oleandrin, the primary active constituent, may be quantified in serum, whole blood or urine to confirm a diagnosis of poisoning in hospitalized patients or to assist in the forensic investigation of a case of fatal overdosage. Most commercial immunoassays for digoxin or digitoxin will cross-react with the oleander glycosides and will suffice for clinical monitoring purposes, but forensic scientists generally rely on instrumental techniques such as liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oleandrin ).
