Pancreatic cancer signaling testing.
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Human

Pancreatic cancer cells were pretreated for 2 hours with KT 5720, triethylammonium salt followed by conventional chemotherapeutics. Selective Inhibition of Protein Kinase A mediated the signal transduction pathways triggered by the chemotherapeutics.

Excellent PKA inhibitor.
By Gaurang Trivedi on 09/28/2019
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Mouse
Cell Line/Tissue: Stem Cells

It is an excellent inhibitor for PKA.
