Replaces Prod. #: BML-AP304

Immunosuppressive agent with anti-inflammatory and antitumor properties. More effective in preventing T cell proliferation and interferon-γ production than FK506 (Prod. No. ALX-380-008). Induces apoptosis in T cells by activating DEVD cleaving caspases. Blocks TNF-α mediated induction of c-IAP1 and c-IAP2 and NF-κB activation. Inhibits induction of MMP-3, MMP-13, and ADAMTS-4 in cell culture.
