Potent, selective inhibitor of IκB kinase (IKK) β (IC50 = 17.9 nM) that displays > 22-fold selectivity over IKKα and > 550-fold selectivity over other kinases and enzymes. Inhibits production of pro-inflammatory cytokines in vitro and in vivo and inhibits NF-κB nuclear localization. Reduces the severity and onset of collagen-induced arthritis; anti-inflammatory.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 279.29. 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||3.58 mL||17.9 mL||35.81 mL|
|5 mM||0.72 mL||3.58 mL||7.16 mL|
|10 mM||0.36 mL||1.79 mL||3.58 mL|
|50 mM||0.07 mL||0.36 mL||0.72 mL|
