CYTOCHALASIN D Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical PropertiesPowder
  • UsesCytochalasin D acts as an anti-hypertensive drug acting on human intestinal epithelial caco-2 cells. Also has activity in HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors used in the lowering of cholesterol. Actin inhib itor, actin polymerization inhibitor affecting cell movement, growth, phagocytosis and even secretion.
  • UsesCytochalasin D is the most studied of the cytochalasins. Like most of the members of this mycotoxin class, cytochalasin D exhibits potent inhibition of actin filament function leading to cell death by apoptosis. This led to early investigation of the metabolite as an antitumour agent. Cytochalasin D has become one of the standard cellular probes for investigating the role of actin in cell biology.
  • UsesA cell cycle arresting compound used in actin polymerization studies and cytological research
  • DefinitionChEBI: An organic heterotricyclic compound that is a mycotoxin produced by Helminthosporium and other moulds which is cell permeable and a potent inhibitor of actin polymerisation and DNA synthesis.
  • General DescriptionNeedles or fluffy white powder.
  • Reactivity ProfileCYTOCHALASIN D may be sensitive to exposure to heat. CYTOCHALASIN D can react with strong oxidizing agents, strong acids and strong bases. .
  • Fire HazardFlash point data for CYTOCHALASIN D are not available; however, CYTOCHALASIN D is probably combustible.
  • Biological ActivityPotent disruptor of actin filament function. Alters tight junction permeability. Unlike cytochalasin B, does not inhibit monosaccharide transport across the plasma membrane.
  • Safety ProfilePoison by ingestion, subcutaneous, and intraperitoneal routes. An experimental teratogen. Experimental reproductive effects. Human mutation data reported. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx.
