Replaces Prod. #: ALX-350-274

Potent immunosuppressant ~10 to 100-fold more potent than cyclosporin A (Prod. No. BML-A195). Blocks sphingolipid biosynthesis by inhibiting serine palmitoyltransferase (Ki=0.28nM), therefore useful as a tool to deplete cells of sphingolipids. Induces apoptosis by depletion of cellular sphingolipids. Inhibits proliferation of an IL-2-dependent mouse cytotoxic cell line CTLL-1 (IC50=15nM).
