Biological ActivityFasudil hydrochloride is a cyclic nucleotide-dependent protein kinase inhibitor and Rho-associated kinase inhibitor (IC50 = 10.7 μM). Fasudil suppresses MMP-2 expression and induces apoptosis in glioblastoma cells in vivo. Fasudil is a Ca2+ antagonist, vasodilator and inhibits proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells. Fasudil binds to α-synuclein to reduce aggregate formation in cellular models of Parkinson's disease, also displays neuroprotective properties and increases survival of dopaminergic neurons in vivo.
