Chemical Name: 3'-[(8-Cinnamoyl-5,7-dihydroxy-2,2-dimethyl-2H-1-benzopyran-6-yl)methyl]-2',4',6'-trihydroxy-5'-methylacetophenone

Biological Activity

Originally reported to inhibit PKC isoforms. Also reported to inhibit CAM kinase III. However, recently shown to inhibit a wide range of protein kinases, and most potently to inhibit PRAK and MAPKAP-K2 (IC50 values are 1.9 and 5 μM respectively). Also shown to act as a direct mitochondrial uncoupler. Thought to stimulate autophagy by targeting upstream mTORC1 control pathways.

Technical Data

Soluble to 2 mM in ethanol with gentle warming and to 20 mM in DMSO
Store at +4°C
