|Mechanism of Action||Mycophenolic Acid blocks inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase in the guanosine monophosphate pathway and suppresses cytokine-induced nitric oxide production.|
|Impurity Profile||Heavy Metals: ≤20ppm|
Total Impurities: ≤2.0%
Individual Impurity: Not more than 0.5%
|Cancer Applications||Mycophenolic acid acts as an inhibitor for inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase (IMPDH), an enzyme responsible for controlling the rate of guanine monophosphate synthesis. IMPDH is required for T-cell and B-cell growth and proliferation to a higher degree than other host cells.|
