Very potent and selective inhibitor of protein kinase C, selective for the α and β1 isoforms (IC50 values are 0.0084, 0.0180, 0.210, 0.132, and 5.8 μM for α, β1, δ, ε and ζ isoforms respectively). Selective over MLCK, PKG and PKA (IC50 values are 0.6, 4.6, and 33 μM respectively). Potent antagonist at the 5-HT3 receptor (Ki = 29.5 nM). Anti-inflammatory in vivo.

GF 109203X (GF-109) was used to clarify an impact of PKC on average open time of GABA-A receptor channel. Experiment on outside-out membrane patches (OOP) and nucleated patches (NP) excised from hippocampal granule cells displayed a significant effect of GF-109 in NPs only. This confirms modulation of GABA-A receptor opening by PKA and ensures absence of GF-109 side effects on GABA-A receptors (since no effect was observed in OOPs).
