5mg
Biochemicals Storage: 4CShipping: RT
Antibiotic. Fatty acid synthase (FAS) inhibitor, reported to bind in equimolar ratio to B-keto-acyl- ACP synthase, thus inhibiting protein acylation. Produces metabolic effects similar to effects of leptin, but through mechanisms that are independent of, or down-stream from, both leptin and melanocortin receptors. Apoptosis inducer. Inhibitor of bacterial fatty acid synthesis (inhibits FabH, FabB and FabF condensation enzymes).
