Cilastatin Na | Protease inhibitor

Cilastatin Na (81129-83-1) is a dehydropeptidase-1 inhibitor. Inhibits the proteolytic conversion of leukotriene D4 to E4.1  Inhibits the mammalian β-lactamase renal dipeptidase (dehydropeptidase-1, DPEP1) and thus is used as an antibacterial adjunct to extend the half-life of β-lactam antibiotics.2 Cilastatin also inhibits bacterial metallo-β-lactamase and thereby may block resistance to the carbapenem family of antibiotics in certain bacteria.3  Suppresses invasion and metastasis of DPEP1-expressing tumor cells.4
