Product Name:Fasudil;HA-1077; AT877
Fasudil has vasodilatory action and occupies the adenine pocket of the ATP-binding site of the enzyme[1]. Fasudil produces a competitive inhibition of the Ca2+-induced contraction of the depolarized rabbit aorta. Fasudil inhibits contractile responses to KCl, phenylephnne (PHE) and prostaglandin (PG) F2a[2]. Fasudil also exhibits vasodilator actions by inhibition of 5-hydroxytryptamine, noradrenaline, histamine, angiotensin, and dopamine induced spiral strips contraction[3]. In addition, Fasudil induces disorganization of actin stress fiber and cell migration inhibition[4]. Fasudil inhibits hepatic stellate cells spreading, the formation of stress fibers, and expression of α-SMA with concomitant suppression of cell growth, but does not induce apoptosis. Fasudil also blocks the LPA-induced phosphorylation of ERK1/2, JNK and p38 MAPK.
