Cell permeable protein phosphatase inhibitor. Inhibits PP1 completely at 3nM and PP2 at 30nM. Inhibition of PP2B is over 10.000 fold weaker and PP2C is not inhibited. Structurally similar to okadaic acid but has opposite relative potency for PP1 and PP2A. Its cell permeability and unique inhibitory profile make tautomycin a useful tool for identifying phosphatase subtypes and physiological substrates for PP2 and PP2A. Treatment of MCF7 cells (breast caner line) with 10µM produced time-dependent inhibition of PP1 (~80% in 6h, 100% in 14 h), with only 20% inhibition of PP2A after 24h.
