Description: UA62784 is a specific inhibitor of centromere protein E (CENPE) kinesin-like protein; mitotic inhibitor. CENP-E is a kinesin-like motor protein that localizes to the kinetochore during mitosis and is essential for bipolar spindle formation. UA62784 is a novel specific inhibitor of CENP-E, which likely binds within the motor domain of CENP-E. UA62784 causes reversible cell cycle arrest in mitosis before metaphase, which leads to apoptosis. The compound is not interacting with microtubules directly.

Additional Information

UA62784 Is a cytotoxic inhibitor of microtubules. UA62784 inhibits microtubule polymerization in vitro. UA62784 interacts with tubulin dimers ten times more potently than colchicine, vinblastine, or nocodazole. UA62784 interacts with tubulin at or near the colchicine-binding site. Nanomolar doses of UA62784 promote the accumulation of mammalian cells in mitosis, due to aberrant mitotic spindles. ( Chem Biol. 2011 May 27;18(5):631-41. doi: 10.1016/j.chembiol.2011.03.006.).
