Potent p21-activated kinase (PAK) inhibitor (IC50 values are 14, 33, 39 and 575 nM for PAK1, PAK2, PAK3 and PAK4 respectively). Blocks and reverses the DISC1 knockdown-induced reduction in dendritic spine size in cortical neurons. Attenuates dendritic spine elimination and enhances spine generation in DISC1 knockdown mice. Ameliorates autism-like behavioral symptoms in fragile X mental retardation 1 (Fmr1) knockout mice. Brain penetrant and orally bioavailable.
