Product Information

GM-6001 is a broad-spectrum matrix metalloproteinase inhibitor with potential anticancer activity. GM6001 is a member of the hydroxamic acid class of reversible metallopeptidase inhibitors. The anionic state of the hydroxamic acid group forms a bidentate complex with the active site zinc. Examples of enzymes that ilomastat inhibit include thermolysin, peptide deformylase, and anthrax lethal factor endopeptidase (LF) produced by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis.

In Vitro:

Ilomastat (GM6001) inhibits human skin fibroblast collagenase, thermolysin and elastase with Kis of 0.4 nM, 20 nM, 20 nM, resepctively[1]. Ilomastat (0.1-10 nM) inhibits gelatinase A and gelatinase B produced by T-cells. Ilomastat inhibits T-cell homing.


In Vivo:

Ilomastat (GM6001) (400 μg/mL) inhibits corneal ulceration after severe alkali injury in animals. Ilomastat (GM6001) significantly suppresses intimal hyperplasia and intimalcollagen content. Ilomastat increases lumen area in stented arteries, shows no activity on proliferation rates in rabbit model after stenting.
