High affinity and selective p38 kinase inhibitor (Kd = 50-100 pM). Exhibits no significant inhibition on a panel of related kinases. Inhibits LPS-induced TNFα production in human PBMCs and whole blood (IC50 values are 21 and 960 nM, respectively). Also inhibits JNK2α2 and c-Raf-1 (IC50 values are 98 nM and 1.4 μM, respectively). Cell permeable.

MAPK Signaling Scientific Review
MAP kinase signaling is integral to the regulation of numerous cellular processes such as proliferation and differentiation, and as a result is an important focus of cancer and immunology research. Updated for 2016, this review discusses the regulation of the MAPK pathway and properties of MAPK cascades. Compounds available from Tocris are listed.
