Biological Activity

Ruxolitinib is a potent and selective JAK1/2 inhibitor (IC50 values are 3.3 and 2.8 nM, respectively). Exhibits selectivity for JAK1/2 over Tyk2 and JAK3 (~6-fold and >130-fold, respectively). Exhibits no significant inhibition against a commercial panel of 26 additional kinases. Inhibits JAK2V617F-mediated signaling and proliferation in Ba/F3 cells and HEL cells. Increases survival rates in a JAK2V617F-driven myeloproliferative neoplasm mouse model. Ruxolitinib has been identified as targeting human host proteins that interact with SARS-CoV-2. The compound can also be used in protocols for the chemical reprogramming of somatic cells to iPSCs. Orally bioavailable.

Phosphate salt (Cat. No. 7048) also available.
