How to use

In Vitro:

CTX1 binds directly to HdmX to prevent p53-HdmX complex formation, resulting in the rapidly induction of p53 in a DNA damage-independent manner.

In Vivo:

CTX1 ( (30 mg/kg; i.p.; five days a week; for 3 weeks) significantly enhances the survival of mice in AML model system. CTX1 exhibited significant anti-cancer activity alone as well as in combination with nutlin-3.
