Apoptosis Activator 2 is a cell-permeable indoledione compound that activates caspases in a cytochrome c-dependent manner and induces apoptosis in tumor cells by promoting the oligomerization of Apaf-1 into the mature apoptosome. Its cytotoxicity is selective towards tumor cells (IC50 < 10 μM for Jurkat, Molt-4, and CCRF-CEM). Apoptosis Activator 2 shows little or no effect on non-tumor cells or cells that are deficient in caspase-3 or Apaf-1. Apoptosis Activator 2 is an activator of caspase-3.
