Alternative Names: Compound C, BML-275

Chemical Name: 6-[4-[2-(1-Piperidinyl)ethoxy]phenyl]-3-(4-pyridinyl)-pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidine dihydrochloride

Biological Activity

Potent and selective inhibitor of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) (Ki = 109 nM). Displays no significant activity on several structurally related kinases including ZAPK, SYK, PKCθ, PKA and JAK3. Inhibits AMPK activation induced by AICAR (Cat. No. 2840) and metformin (Cat. No. 2864). Also inhibits bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) type I receptors (ALK2, ALK3 and ALK6). Promotes cardiomyogenesis in mouse embryonic stem cells (ESCs) in vitro. Shown to induce autophagy in cancer cell lines via a mechanism independent of AMPK inhibition.

Technical Data

Soluble to 100 mM in water and to 20 mM in DMSO with gentle warming
>98 %
Desiccate at RT
