Product Name: Quercetin-CREKA(Carbamate)
IUPAC Name: Quercetin-Cys-Arg-Glu-Lys-Ala(Carbamate), (3R,6S,9S,12S,15S)-12-(4-aminobutyl)-9-(2-carboxyethyl)-1-((2-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl)-3,5-dihydroxy-4-oxo-4H-chromen-7-yl)oxy)-6-(3-guanidinopropyl)-3-(mercaptomethyl)-15-methyl-1,4,7,10,13-pentaoxo-2,5,8,11,14-pentaazahexadecan-16-oic acid,
Description: The tumor-homing peptide Cys-Arg-Glu-Lys-Ala (CREKA) is a short linear pentapeptide that recognizes clotted plasma proteins and selectively homes in on tumors. Interestingly, this tumor-homing peptide has attracted special attention as it homes in on tumors amplifying its own homing activity by stimulating platelet clot formation. Quercetin is a natural flavonoid found abundantly in almost all edible vegetables and fruits. There is growing body of evidence showing that quercetin has great therapeutic potential in the prevention and treatment of different chronic diseases, including cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, as well as cancer.
