Cat. No. 1616
Chemical Name: 3-(2,4-Dichlorophenyl)-4-(1-methyl-
Biological ActivityPotent and selective, ATP-competitive glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) inhibitor (IC50 = 34.3 nM for GSK-3α). Equally effective at inhibiting human GSK-3α and GSK-3β. Exhibits minimal activity against 24 other protein kinases (IC50 >10 μM). Stimulates glycogen synthesis in liver cells, and induces β-catenin-dependent gene transcription. Neuroprotective; also reduces pulmonary inflammation and fibrosis in a mouse model. Shown to maintain mouse embryonic stem cells in a pluripotent state.
