Description
Prodigiosin is an intensely red pyrrole pigment produced by several bacteria, most notably Serratia marcescens. Prodigiosin has a broad biological profile with activity against fungi, tumor cell lines and malaria. It was shown to be an immunosuppressant in 2007.

Prodigiosin is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF and DMSO.

    CAS Number

    82-89-3

    Molecular Formula

    C20H25N3O

    Molecular Weight

    323.4

    Mechanism of Action

    Prodigiosin acts via caspase inhibition to induce of apoptosis in human primary cancer cells. Prodigiosin also acts as an inducer of p21WAF1/CIP1 expression via transforming growth factor-β receptor pathway, and activates NAG-1 via glycogen synthase kinase-3β.

    -20°C
