Catalog Number: 4128
Chemical Name: 3-(1H-Indol-3-yl)-4-[1-[2-(1-methyl-2-pyrrolidinyl)ethyl]-1H-indol-3-yl]-1H-pyrrole-2,5-dione
Biological Activity
Potent, ATP-competitive protein kinase C (PKC) inhibitor (IC50 = 0.01 μM). Displays selectivity for PKC over protein kinase A (PKA) and phosphorylase kinase (PK) (IC50 values are 0.75 and 2μM for PK and PKA respectively). Also displays potent, noncompetitive antagonism at nicotinic cholinergic receptors (IC50 ~ 0.03 μM for inhibition of catecholamine secretion in nicotine-stimulated PC-12 cells).
