Cat. No. 3194
Alternative Name: 6BIO
Chemical Name: (2'Z,3'E)-6-Bromoindirubin-3'-oxime
Biological ActivityPotent and selective, ATP-competitive glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) inhibitor (IC50 values are 5, 83, 300, 320 and > 10 000 nM at GSK-3, CDK5/p25, CDK2/cyclin A, CDK1/cyclin B and other common kinases respectively). Maintains self-renewal and pluripotency in embryonic stem cells via activation of the Wnt signaling pathway in vitro; also promotes proliferation and dedifferentiation in cardiomyocytes. Negative control available (Cat. No. 3873).
