PAC-1 | Procaspase activator

PAC-1 (315183-21-2) is a procaspase-activating compound, directly activating procaspase-3, producing caspase-3, EC50=0.22 µM.1 It is less potent at activating procaspase-7, EC50=4.5 µM. It induces apoptosis in a variety of cancer cell lines. The mechanism of activation involves sequestering inhibitory zinc ions thus allowing procaspase-3 to autoactivate.2   Sensitizes cancer cells to various chemotherapeutic agents.3
