Product overview

  • Name
    Carboplatin
  • Short description
    Cisplatin analog. Blocks DNA replication and transcription.
  • Biological description
    Potent platinum-based antineoplastic agent. Analog of cisplatin with reduced nephrotoxicity and higher stability. Antitumor agent. Forms inter- and intrastrand DNA adducts/crosslinks, consequently blocking DNA replication and transcription and inducing cell death. Interferes with cell division by mitosis. The damaged DNA elicits DNA repair mechanisms, which in turn activate apoptosis when repair is impossible. Apoptosis inducer. Enhances radiation-induced single-strand DNA breakage.
