Apcin (APC inhibitor) is an inhibitor of the E3 ligase activity of the mitotic anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C) that binds to Cdc20 and competitively inhibits the ubiquitylation of D-box-containing substrates.

How to use

In Vitro:

Apcin is a novel cell‑permeable molecule that blocks the interaction between APC/C and Cdc20. Apcin is demonstrated to inhibit OS cell growth and induce significant apoptosis. The invasion and mobile abilities of OS cells are also markedly suppressed by apcin treatment. Furthermore, Bim and p21 are upregulated in OS cells following apcin treatment. The inhibition of CDC20 with its inhibitor Apcin reduces the adhesion rate and proliferation ability to RL95-2 and HEC-1A cells, respectively.

In Vivo:

CDC20 inhibitor Apcin inhibits embryo implantation in vivo.
