Competitive sphingosine kinase (SphK) inhibitor. Exhibits inhibitory activity in platelets and in cytosolic extracts from U937, Swiss 3T3 and PC12 cells. Selectively inhibits sphingosine phosphorylation; does not inhibit N-acylation, and displays no inhibitory effect on protein kinase C at concentrations that inhibit SphK. Increases the release of IL-1β and MCP-1 in cultured astrocytes; thought to mediate mechanical allodynia via this mechanism.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 327.55. Batch specific molecular weights may vary from batch to batch due to solvent of hydration, which will affect the solvent volumes required to prepare stock solutions.
|Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass||1 mg||5 mg||10 mg|
|1 mM||3.05 mL||15.26 mL||30.53 mL|
|5 mM||0.61 mL||3.05 mL||6.11 mL|
|10 mM||0.31 mL||1.53 mL||3.05 mL|
|50 mM||0.06 mL||0.31 mL||0.61 mL|
