3-Methyladenine | Autophagosome inhibitor

3-Methyladenine (5142-23-4) inhibits autophagy by blocking autophagosome formation via inhibition of type III phosphatidylinositol 3-kinases (PI-3K)1,2. Protects 1321N1 astrocytoma cells against pyocyanin and hydroxyphenazine-induced toxicity3. 3-Methyladenine enhances induction of apoptosis by celastrol (Cat.# 10-2187) in human pancreatic cancer cells4.
