Description:
5-Aza-dCTP is a inhibitor of DNA methylation and an antileukemic agent. It has been used to reactivate silent tumor suppressor genes.

Specific Ligands:

DNA-binding[1]

Please note:

1.) Contains at least 10 mg product

2.) The triazine moiety of decitabine is prone to acid- and base-catalyzed decomposition.[2] Always prepare a fresh solution for immediate use. Neutral buffers and low temperatures are most appropriate.
