The MyBio Team would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your business and continued support. We look forward to meeting you again in 2024.
Active Motif's Arecoline hydrobromide is an inhibitor of acetyl-CoA acetyltransferase 1 (ACAT1). Tyrosine 407 phosphorylation activates mitochondrial acetyl-CoA ACAT1 by stabilizing its tetramer. This is believed to be the mechanisms by which ACAT1 is "hijacked" and contributes to the Warburg effect in cancer. Arecoline is a covalent inhibitor of ACAT1 which binds to and disrupts only ACAT1 tetramers (IC50 = 11.1 uM). ACAT2 and DLAT are not inhibited. Treatment of xenograft nude mice with Arecoline resulted in a dose-dependent reduction in tumor mass. It is an agonist at muscarinic acetylcholine receptors M1-M5 (EC50 in the range of 7-410 nM), and may be involved in dementia.
