Selective inhibitor of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) (IC50
= 0.3 μ
M in vitro
). Also inhibits and reverses the formation of Aβ
42 fibers associated with Alzheimer's disease. Eliminates calcium influx potential when coincubated with amyloid β-peptide (1-42)
(Cat.No. 1428); reduces neurotoxicity by blocking Ca2+
influx into neuronal cells.
