Mitomycin C is a potent antitumor antibiotic. It is derived from Streptomyces caespitosus and exhibits strong cytotoxic properties. It works by cross-linking DNA, inhibiting DNA synthesis, and inducing cell death. Mitomycin C finds applications in molecular biology and cell biology research. It is frequently employed as a DNA cross-linking agent in studies involving DNA damage and repair mechanisms.
Researchers use Mitomycin C to induce DNA adduct formation and study the cellular response to DNA damage. One notable feature of Mitomycin C is its ability to induce DNA cross-links in both dividing and non-dividing cells, making it useful for investigating cellular processes beyond actively dividing cells.
