Used in cancer research
|Alternate Names||VLB; Vincaleukoblastine sulfate salt|
|Application Notes||Vinblastine Sulfate is used in cancer research.|
|Base Catalog Number||190287|
|Beilstein Registry Number||3659812|
|Biochemical Physiological Actions||Plant alkaloid that inhibits microtubule assembly by binding tubulin and inducing self-association in spiral aggregates in a reaction that appears to be regulated by the C-terminus of β-tubulin and is enhanced by GDP and GTP. Depolymerizes microtubules. Arrests the cell cycle in G2/M-phase by blocking mitotic spindle formation. Triggers Raf-1 activation, phosphorylation of bcl-2-family proteins, induction of p53 expression, and apoptosis in several tumor cell lines. Substrate of Pgp and CYP3A4.|
