Technical Data
Cochlioquinone A (Luteoleersin)
Biochemicals Storage: +4CShipping: Blue Ice
Cochlioquinone A is the major component of a bioactive pigment isolated from Bipolaris leersia. Cochlioquinone A has been recently shown to be an antagonist of the human chemokine receptor CCR5 in human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1). It is anti-angiogenic and exhibits inhibitory activity against diacylglycerol acyltransferase and NADH-ubiquinone reductase.
