4-Methylbenzylidene-camphor (4-MBC, also known as ENZACAMENE) is an organic sunscreen components, that protects against UV radiation and may therefore help in the prevention of skin cancer. Recently was reveled, that 4-MBC was a teratogen and influenced muscular and neuronal development, which might result in developmental defects.

Sample Use Guides

Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure Reapply: immediately after towel drying. At least every 2 hours
Route of Administration: Topical
Zebrafish embryos were exposed to various concentrations of 4-Methylbenzylidene camphor (4-MBC/ ENZACAMENE) in embryo medium for 3 days. A high concentration of 4-MBC was used for the purpose of phenotypic screening. Embryos exposed to 15 μM of 4-MBC displayed abnormal axial curvature and exhibited impaired motility. Exposure effects were found to be greatest during the segmentation period, when somite formation and innervation occur. Immunostaining of the muscle and axon markers F59, znp1, and zn5 revealed that 4-MBC exposure leads to a disorganized pattern of slow muscle fibers and axon pathfinding errors during the innervation of both primary and secondary motor neurons.
