Description
OverviewA cell-permeable, orally bioavailable, blood-brain barrier-permeant MTIC [5-(3-methyltriazen-1-yl-)-imidazole-4-carboxamide] prodrug whose in vivo DNA alkylating activity is employed in anticancer therapy. MGMT (O6-methylguanine DNA methyl transferase) repairs TMZ-damaged DNA lesion by covalently transferring O6-methylation on guanine residues to a cysteine residue on the MGMT, forming the basis of TMZ-resistance in cancer treatment.

Please note that the molecular weight for this compound is batch-specific due to variable water content. Please refer to the vial label or the certificate of analysis for the batch-specific molecular weight. The molecular weight provided represents the baseline molecular weight without water.
