Catalog Number: 5989
Alternate Names: Doramapimod
Chemical Name: N-[3-(1,1-Dimethylethyl)-1-(4-methylphenyl)-1H-pyrazol-5-yl]-N'-[4-[2-(4-morpholinyl)ethoxy]-1-naphthalenyl]urea
Biological Activity
High affinity and selective p38 kinase inhibitor (Kd = 50-100 pM). Exhibits no significant inhibition on a panel of related kinases. Inhibits LPS-induced TNFα production in human PBMCs and whole blood (IC50 values are 21 and 960 nM, respectively). Also inhibits JNK2α2 and c-Raf-1 (IC50 values are 98 nM and 1.4 μM, respectively). Cell permeable.
