Description:
Manumycin A is a potent cell-permeable inhibitor of Ras farnesyltransferase (IC50 30 nM). It does not affect geranylgeranyltransferase (IC50 =180 μM). Inhibition is competitive with respect to farnesyl pyrophosphate and non-competitive with respect to Ras. Inhibits neutral sphingomyelinase and blocks insulin-induced MAP kinase activation in rat cardiac myocytes.
