A cell-permeable, non-alkylating, non-thiol, adduct-forming, redox cycling quinone. Can be used to eliminate any mechanistic ambiguity involving redox cycling quinoids as the source of reactive oxidant species/oxidative stress in biological studies. DMNQ is also reported to result in either cell proliferation or apoptotic or necrotic cell death, depending upon the concentration used.
|Handling||Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and aerosols. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. Normal measures for preventive fire protection.|
