Obatoclax

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: BCL2; Obatoclax yields cellular outcomes that are not consistent with specificity for BCL2, including MEK-ERK inhibition; Soderquist & Eastman. BCL2 inhibitors as anticancer drugs: a plethora of misleading BH3 mimetics. Mol Cancer Ther. 15, 2011-7 (2016).
