General description

A cell-permeable tetracyclic diterpene antibiotic. Cell synchronization agent. Blocks the cell cycle at the early S-phase. Specific inhibitor of DNA polymerase α and δ in eukaryotic cells and in some viruses of animal origin. Potentiates apoptosis induced by arabinosyl nucleosides in leukemia cell lines. Also induces apoptosis in HeLaS3 cells, but inhibits vincristine-induced apoptosis in the p53-negative human prostate cancer cell line PC-3.
