Alternative Name: Goe 6983

Chemical Name: 3-[1-[3-(Dimethylamino)propyl]-5-methoxy-1H-indol-3-yl]-4-(1H-indol-3-yl)-1H-pyrrole-2,5-dione

Biological Activity

Broad spectrum protein kinase C (PKC) inhibitor (IC50 values are 7, 7, 6, 10, 60 and 20000 nM for PKCα, PKCβ, PKCγ, PKCδ, PKCζ and PKCμ respectively). Displays cardioprotective properties; reduces polymorphonuclear leukocyte adherence and infiltration following myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury. Optimizes naïve human pluripotent stem cell growth and viability following naïve cell derivation from primed ESCs and iPSCs using naïve human stem cell medium (NHSM).

Technical Data
