Acriflavine is a fluorescent dye for labeling high molecular weight RNA. It is also a topical antiseptic.

In Vitro

Acriflavine is identified as a potent inhibitor of the MCT4 that can inhibit the binding between Basigin and MCT4. Acriflavine significantly inhibits growth and self-renewal potential of several glioblastoma neurosphere lines[1].
The HIF-1 inhibitor acriflavine decreases survival and growth of CML cells. It targets stem cell potential of CML cells[2].

MedChemExpress (MCE) has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

In Vivo

Acriflavine treatment inhibits intratumoral expression of VEGF and tumor vascularization[1].
In a murine CML model, acriflavine decreases leukemia development and reduces LSC maintenance[2].
Acriflavine retards tumor growth in a murine model of breast cancer. The combination of sunitinib with acriflavine significantly decreases vascular endothelial growth factor and TGF-β expression and reduces tumor vasculature followed by increased intratumor necrosis and apoptosis[3].

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.
