Zn (II) Deuteroporphyrin IX 2,4 bisethylene glycol

Catalog No.:  F-H090
MW: 694.04
CAS: 15442-64-5

Description:  Zn (II) Deuteroporphyrin IX 2,4 bis ethyleneglycol is an inhibitor of heme oxygenase (the enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of heme to biliverdin in the heme degradation pathway) at concentrations as low at 0.5 μM. Heme oxygenase has been implicated in tumor cell resistance to chemotherapy, reduction of free radical formation and inflammation, and associated with vascular repair.


Zn (II) Deuteroporphyrin IX 2,4 bis ethyleneglycol is stable for at least one year when stored as a solid, protected from moisture, at -20 °C. Protect from light.
