Biological Data

Biological description

Protein synthesis inhibitor which prevents elongation and causes polysome stabilization by binding to the 60S ribosomal subunit to prevent peptide bond formation.

Also acts as a potent JNK and p38 MAPK activator.

Initiates intracellular signals for rapid induction of immediate-early (IE) genes (e.g. c-fos, fosB, c-jun, JunB and JunD).

Additionally, thought to block late long-term potentiation (L-LTP) and at high doses reduces neuronal activity.
