Potent glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) inhibitor (Ki = 0.6 nM for GSK-3α and GSK-3β). Displays high selectivity (> 50-fold) for GSK-3 over a panel of other kinases tested, including CDK family members. Decreases phosphorylation of microtubule-associated protein Tau in vitro; protects rat primary cortical neurons against β amyloid and glutamate challenge. Brain penetrant.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 362.31. Batch specific molecular weights may vary from batch to batch due to solvent of hydration, which will affect the solvent volumes required to prepare stock solutions.
|Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass||1 mg||5 mg||10 mg|
|1 mM||2.76 mL||13.8 mL||27.6 mL|
|5 mM||0.55 mL||2.76 mL||5.52 mL|
|10 mM||0.28 mL||1.38 mL||2.76 mL|
|50 mM||0.06 mL||0.28 mL||0.55 mL|
The reconstitution calculator allows you to quickly calculate the volume of a reagent to reconstitute your vial. Simply enter the mass of reagent and the target concentration and the calculator will determine the rest.

Literature in this Area
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a degenerative brain disease and the most common cause of dementia, affecting approximately 47 million people worldwide. Updated in 2015, this poster summarizes the structural and functional changes observed in the progression of this neurodegenerative disease, as well as classic AD drug targets.
Schizophrenia is a debilitating psychiatric disorder that affects 1% of the worldwide population. This poster describes the neurobiology of Schizophrenia, as well as highlighting the genetic and environmental factors that play a fundamental role in the etiology of the disease. The current and emerging drug targets are also discussed.
