Chelerythrine

Compound status: 
Historic compound: While this compound has been used to interrogate specific protein targets, it is not a chemical probe and should not be used in assays that depend on a potent and selective modulator of the protein.
Note about activity: 

Intended target: BCLXL; Chelerythrine induces apoptosis in Bax/Bak-deficient cells; Van Delft et al. The BH3 mimetic ABT-737 targets selective Bcl-2 proteins and efficiently induces apoptosis via Bak/Bax if Mcl-1 is neutralized. Cancer Cell. 10, 389-99 (2006).
