Chemical Name: 4-(2,3-Dihydro-1,4-benzodioxin-6-yl)-2,4-dihydro-5-[(5-nitro-2-thiazolyl)thio]-3H-1,2,4-triazol-3-one

Biological Activity

Competitive c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) inhibitor (IC50 = 280 nM) that displays > 100 fold selectivity over p38α and no activity at mTOR and PI-3K. Inhibits JNK interacting protein 1 (JIP1)-JNK binding (IC50 = 500 nM) and prevents JNK substrate phosphorylation. Blocks JNK-dependent Con A-induced liver damage and restores insulin sensitivity in a mouse model of type II diabetes.

Technical Data

Soluble to 100 mM in DMSO and to 5 mM in ethanol
>99 %
Store at +4°C
