Borrelidin | Angiogenesis inhibitor

Novel macrolide which inhibits bacterial and eukaryotic threonyl-tRNA synthetase.1 Displays potent anti-angiogenic activity (IC50=0.8 nM) and induces the collapse of newly formed capillary tubules.2 Modulates alternative splicing of VEGF in favor of anti-angiogenic isoforms.3 Induces apoptosis in ALL cell lines.4 Induces unfolded protein response in oral cancer cells.5 Cell permeable.
