Product Description:

GYY4137 is one of the synthetic hydrogen sulfide donors derived from Lawsson’s reagent. It is water-soluble and releases H2S very slowly by hydrolysis in aqueous solutions. GYY4137 has shown distinct cellular effects such as anti-hypertensive, anti-atherosclerotic and anti-tumor activities in several reports.
