Product Details:

  • Product Name: Etoposide
  • CAS #: 33419-42-0
  • Mode of Action:

    Etoposide inhibits DNA topoisomerase II, thereby inhibiting DNA re-ligation. This causes critical errors in DNA synthesis at the premitotic stage of cell division and can lead to apoptosis of the cancer cell.. Etoposide is cell cycle dependent and phase specific, affecting mainly the S and G2 phases of cell division.

  • Pharmacodynamics:

    Etoposide is an antineoplastic agent and an epipodophyllotoxin (a semisynthetic derivative of the podophyllotoxins). It inhibits DNA topoisomerase II, thereby ultimately inhibiting DNA synthesis. Etoposide is cell cycle dependent and phase specific, affecting mainly the S and G2 phases. Two different dose-dependent responses are seen. At high concentrations (10 µg/mL or more), lysis of cells entering mitosis is observed. At low concentrations (0.3 to 10 µg/mL), cells are inhibited from entering prophase. It does not interfere with microtubular assembly. The predominant macromolecular effect of etoposide appears to be the induction of DNA strand breaks by an interaction with DNA-topoisomerase II or the formation of free radicals.

  • Metabolism:

    Primarily hepatic (through O-demethylation via the CYP450 3A4 isoenzyme pathway) with 40% excreted unchanged in the urine.

  • Toxicity:

    Side effects include alopecia, constipation, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting and secondary malignancies (leukemia).

  • IUPAC: (10R, 11R, 15R, 16S)-16-{[(2R, 4aR, 6R, 7R, 8R, 8aS)-7, 8-dihydroxy-2-methyl-hexahydro-2H-pyrano[3, 2-d][1, 3]dioxin-6-yl]oxy}-10-(4-hydroxy-3, 5-dimethoxyphenyl)-4, 6, 13-trioxatetracyclo[, {3, 7}.0, {11, 15}]hexadeca-1(9), 2, 7-trien-12-one
