GlcNAcstatin G


GlcNAcstatin G is a nanomolar inhibitor of human OGA that is 900,000-fold selective for HsOGA compared to the related lysosomal hexosaminidases. When used at nanomolar concentrations on live cells, this cell-penetrant molecule shifts the O-GlcNAc equilibrium toward hyper-O-GlcNAcylation with EC50 values reported in the 20–100 nM range.
