Catalog Number: 3239
Chemical Name: 3,4-Dihydro-6-[[4-[[[3-(methylsulfonyl)phenyl]methyl]amino]-5-(trifluoromethyl)-2-pyrimidinyl]amino]-2(1H)-quinolinone
Biological Activity
Potent and selective inhibitor of focal adhesion kinase (FAK) (IC50 = 4 nM). Displays 50 - 250-fold selectivity for FAK over other protein kinases. Blocks serum and fibronectin-directed migration and decreases focal adhesion turnover in vitro.
