Technical Data
O-Methylviridicatin (AIDS-089094, 3-Methoxy-4-phenyl-1H-quinolin-2-one)
Biochemicals Storage: 4C/-20CShipping: Blue Ice
3-O-Methylviridicatin is a metabolite produced by several species in the genus, Penicillium. Recently, 3-O-methylviridicatin was demonstrated to be a strong inhibitor of the tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF)-induced replication of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Lack of availability has hitherto restricted a more intensive investigation of this interesting metabolite.

Soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO. Limited water solubility
