Fasentin | Glucose uptake inhibitor

Fasentin (392721-37-8) is a novel inhibitor of glucose uptake which acts via inhibition of the glucose transporter GluT1 and GluT4 (IC50=68 μM).1 Inhibition of glucose uptake is cell type specific2 and is a promising approach to new cancer therapeutics3. Rescues cardiac progenitor cell dysfunction and mitochondrial fission induced by high glucose.4 Sensitizes cells to FAS-induced cell death.5,6
