This anti-microbial peptide (AMP) has been shown to cause lysis of several human cancer cell lines. Macropin-2 is most potent against CCRF-CEM T lymphoblastoid (human acute lymphoblastic leukemia) cells. At higher concentrations Macropin-2 also causes lysis of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC), rat intestinal epithelial cells (IEC), human cervix carcinoma (HeLa) cells and human colon adenocarcinoma (SW480). Macropin-1 is also available in our catalogue.
