SAICAR-d is the deuterium labeled SAICAR. SAICAR is an intermediate of de novo purine nucleotide biosynthesis, activates pyruvate kinase isoform M2 (PKM2) in an isozyme-selective manner, with an EC50 of 0.3 mM. SAICAR stimulates PKM2 and promotes cancer cell survival in glucose-limited conditions[1][2].–Applications-Metabolism-sugar/lipid metabolism-Formula-C13H18DN4O12P-Citation–References-[1]Keller KE, et al.
