Biological Activity

SP 600125 is a selective JNK inhibitor. Competitively and reversibly inhibits JNK1, 2 and 3 (IC50 = 40 - 90 nM) with negligible activity at ERK2, p38β and a range of enzymes. Active in vivo. Exhibits reduced selectivity over other protein kinases under certain conditions. SP 600125 protects renal tubular epithelial cells from ischemia/reperfusion-induced apoptosis. Promotes chondrogenesis of bone mesenchymal stem cells by inhibition of TNF-α-induced inflammation. Adipogenesis from MSCs is also promoted by SP 600125. Essential component of medium for maintaining stem cells in naive pluripotent state.

SP 600125 synthesized to Ancillary Material Grade also available.
