Description: LY573636 is an Acyl sulfonamide anti-proliferative agent (ASAP). Tasisulam was shown in initial screens to exhibit activity against a broad range of cancer cell lines, including melanoma. Tasisulam induces apoptosis via activation of the mitochondrialcell death pathway, which leads to cytochrome C release, caspases 2/9 activation, and ultimately apoptosis.Moreover, tasisulam-mediated mitochondrial dysfunction has been associated with decreased adenosinetriphosphate (ATP) production and increased levels of ROS within cancer cells.
