RG108

MECHANISM OF ACTION:
RG108 is a DNA methyltransferase (DMNT) inhibitor. It reactivates tumor suppressor gene expression (p16, SFRP1, secreted frizzled related protein-1, and TIMP-3) in tumor cells by DNA demethylation. RG108 also inhibits human tumor cell line (HCT116, NALM-6) proliferation and increased doubling time in culture.
