GA - HSP90 Inhibitor

An inhibitor of the heat-shock protein Hsp 90

Geldanamycin (GA) is a natural product produced by Streptomyces hygroscopicus.

InvivoGen produces GA from a mutant strain of S. hygroscopicus, inactivated for the synthesis of nigericin, a common contaminant of GA.

GA binds with high affinity into the ATP binding pocket of Hsp90. Hsp90 is a ubiquitous molecular chaperone critical for the folding, assembly and activity of multiple mutated and overexpressed signaling proteins that promote the growth and/or survival of tumor cells.
Hsp90 client proteins include mutated p53, Raf-1, Akt, ErbB2 and hypoxia-inducible factor 1a (HIF-1a) [1]. Binding of GA to Hsp90 causes the destabilization and degradation of its client proteins [2].
