(Rac)-Indoximod (1-Methyl-DL-tryptophan) is an indoleamine 2, 3-dioxygenase (IDO) inhibitor. Co-treatment with IFN-γ and (Rac)-Indoximod markedly reduces the activity of human cardiac myofibroblasts (hCMs) expressing α-SMA and induces apoptosis through up-regulating the IRF-1, Fas, and FasL genes.

How to use

In Vitro:

(Rac)-Indoximod (1-Methyl-DL-tryptophan; 0.5 mM; 3 days) inhibits tryptophan depletion, thereby partially reversing the growth-inhibitory activity of IFN-γ, but eventually induces cell death regardless of tryptophan depletion.
