  • Description

Tunicamycin is a mixture of homologous nucleoside antibiotics. An inhibitor of glycosylation. Tunicamycin Blocks the formation of N-glycosidic linkages by inhibiting the first step in glycoprotein synthesis.
In vitro: Tunicamycin causes accumulation of unfolded proteins in cell endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Tunicamycin-induced ER stress suppresses CD44+/CD24- phenotype cell subpopulation. Tunicamycin inhibite invasion, increase cell death, suppress proliferation and reduce migration in the CD44+/CD24- and CD44+/CD24- rich MCF7 cell culture. [1]
In vivo: Administering tunicamycin further increase protein expression levels of ER stress indicators and inflammatory cytokines, and resulted in more severe asthma phenotypes in OVALPS-OVA mice. [2]
