Biological Activity for GW 5074

GW 5074 is a potent, selective and cell-permeable c-Raf1 kinase inhibitor (IC50 = 9 nM). GW 5074 displays ≥ 100-fold selectivity for raf kinase over CDK1, CDK2, c-src, ERK2, MEK, p38, Tie2, VEGFR2 and c-fm. GW 5074 binds mutant huntingtin (mHTT) and decreases levels of mHTT in cultured hippocampal neurons and fibroblasts from patients with Huntington's disease. Brain penetrant.
