How to use

In Vitro:

ZYZ-488 decreases apoptosis in hypoxic H9c2 cells. ZYZ-488 inhibits hypoxia induced Apaf-1-mediated activation of procaspase-9 and procaspase-3. ZYZ-488 decreases myocardial enzyme release, inhibits cardiomyocyte apoptosis, and suppresses the activation of the downstream cascade of caspases.

In Vivo:

ZYZ-488 (33.9-67.8 mg/kg; intramuscularly; for 3 days) protected against myocardial apoptosis.
