Overview

  • Product name
    Pitstop® 1
  • Description
    Novel, selective clathrin inhibitor
  • Biological description
    Novel, selective clathrin inhibitor. Competitively inhibits clathrin terminal domain (TD) to selectively inhibit clathrin mediated endocytosis (IC50 = ~18 μM for inhibition of amphiphysin association of clathrin TD). Interferes with receptor mediated endocytosis, entry of HIV and synaptic vesicle recycling. Exhibits limited cell membrane penetration, however it is active in cells after microinjection.
