Selective inhibitor of the nicotinamide pathway dependent NAD+synthesis, causing NAD+ depletion. Highly specific, non-competitive inhibitor of nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT/NAPRT) for both the enzyme/substrate complex and the free enzyme (Ki=0.4 nM and Ki´=0.3 nM, respectively). NAD+ depletion by FK-866 directs delayed cell death by apoptosis in Hep-G2 human liver carcinoma cells (IC50=~1 nM). Causes premature senescence in normal human smooth muscle cells. Induces autophagy in SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells, as indicated by the formation of LC3-positive vesicles.

Product Details

Alternative Name:K 22.175, N-[4-(1-benzoyl-4-piperidinyl)butyl]-3-(3-pyridinyl)-2E-propenamide
Purity:≥98% (NMR)
Appearance:White to yellow solid.
Solubility:Soluble in 100% ethanol, dimethyl formamide (40mg/ml) or DMSO (25mg/ml); sparingly soluble in aqueous buffers.
Shipping:Blue Ice
Long Term Storage:-20°C
Handling:Very hygroscopic Packaged under inert gas. Keep under inert gas.
Scientific Background:NAMPT catalyzes the condensation of nicotinamide with 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate to yield nicotinamide mononucleotide, an intermediate in the biosynthesis of NAD+. It is the major rate limiting component in the mammalian NAD+ biosynthesis pathway.
Regulatory Status:RUO - Research Use Only
