Biological Activity for Enzastaurin

Enzastaurin is a potent PKCβ inhibitor (IC50 values are 6, 39, 83 and 110 nM for PKCβ, PKCα, PKCγ and PKCε, respectively). Suppresses proliferation and induces apoptosis in HCT116 colon carcinoma and U87MG glioblastoma cells in vitro. Reduces tumor growth and exhibits antiangiogenic activity in HT-29 colon carcinoma xenografts in mice. Also suppresses growth of HCT116 and U87MG xenografts in mice. Orally active.
