Ro 31-8220 mesylate
Cat. No. 2002
Alternative Name: Bisindolylmaleimide IX
Chemical Name: 3-[3-[2,5-Dihydro-4-(1-methyl-1H-in
Biological ActivityProtein kinase C inhibitor, with activity at other protein kinases (IC50 values are 33, 3, 8, 15 and 38 nM for PKCα, MAPKAP-K1b, MSK1, GSK3β and S6K1 respectively). Activates JNK and glycogen synthase, and inhibits MAPK and ERK2, in rat adipocytes and L6 myotubes. Also inhibits voltage-dependent Na+ channels in the micromolar range.
