Meleagrin | Met inhibitor, anticancer activity

Meleagrin (71751-77-4) is a novel alkaloid biosynthesized via the roquefortine branched biosynthetic pathway.1,2  Displays excellent ATP-competitive c-MET inhibition, inhibiting the growth, migration and invasion of numerous breast cancer cell lines.3 Also has been shown to inhibit the bacterial enoyl-acyl carrier protein reductase (Fabl) with IC50s in the 33-40 mM range.4
