Product Information

Ro 08-2750 is a potent and selective Nerve growth factor (NGF) inhibitor that binds the NGF dimer (KD ~ 1 μM). NGF has potential effects on matrix turnover activity and influences the catabolic/anabolic balance of IVD cells in an adverse way that may potentiate IVD degeneration. Anti-NGF treatment might be beneficial to ameliorate progressive tissue breakdown in IVD degeneration and may lead to pain relief.

In Vitro:

Ro 08-2750 binds to the NGF dimer thereby probably inducing a change in its conformation such that NGF cannot bind to p75NTR anymore.

Ro 08-2750 (10 nM) completely rescues cells from undergoing NGF-induced SK-N-MC 103 cells death.

Ro 08-2750 (5-10 μM; 8 hours) increases differentiation and apoptosis in myeloid leukemia cells.

Ro 08-2750 inhibits survival of human AML lines and patient cells.

Ro 08-2750 inhibits MSI2 RNA-binding and alters MSI2 gene signature.


In Vivo:

Ro 08-2750 (13.75 mg/kg; i.p.) inhibits leukemogenesis in a myeloid leukemia model in vivo.
