Docetaxel | Microtubule stabilizing agent

Docetaxel (114977-28-5) is an antimitotic chemotherapeutic which inhibits via reversible high-affinity binding to microtubules1. Induces apoptosis in a variety of cancer cell lines2 however, tumor cells can quickly develop resistance to docetaxel via several mechanisms3,4. Docetaxel can act in synergy with a variety of other anticancer agents including kinase inhibitors.5,6
