Technical Data
Fumitremorgin C
Biochemicals Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Fumitremorgin C is a tremorgenic mycotoxin isolated from Aspergillus fumigatus. Recent research has recognized Fumitremorgin C as a potent and specific inhibitor of the breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP/ABCG2) multidrug transporter. It reverses multidrug resistance mediated by BCRP and increases cytotoxicity of several anticancer agents in vitro.

Soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20C. Stable for 12 months at -20C. Reconstitute with ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Reconstituted product is stable for 6 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
