D-NMAPPD is an inhibitor of ceramidase.1 It induces cell death in SW403 colon adenocarcinoma cells in a time- and concentration-dependent manner but has no effect on viability of rat hepatocytes, Kupffer cells, or sinusoidal endothelial cells when used at a concentration of 100 mM. D-NMAPPD increases intracellular ceramide accumulation and cytochrome C release and induces apoptosis in SW403 cells, effects that can be prevented by the caspase-3 inhibitor Ac-DEVD-CHO (Item No. 10017). In vivo, D-NMAPPD (75 mg/kg) reduces tumor growth and the number of hepatic metastases in SW403 and LoVo colon cancer mouse xenograft models.WARNING This product is not for human or veterinary use.
