  • Tool sub type: Inhibitor
  • Description: A selective inhibitor of Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) which demonstrates anti-cancer activity. G6PD is a critical metabolic enzyme involved in the oxidative phase of the pentose phosphate pathway. Chinese hamster ovary cells that are devoid of G6PD display increased sensitivity to radiation and human fibroblasts deficient in G6PD display increased ROS and radiation sensitivity. Clinically, evidence from studies in larynx and gastric cancer suggests that tumours show increased G6PD activity, and this correlates to a poor clinical outcome.
