Bisindolylmaleimide II


Product overview

  • Name
    Bisindolylmaleimide II
  • Short description
    Potent PKC inhibitor
  • Biological description
    Potent protein kinase C (PKC) inhibitor (IC50 = 0.10 µM). Displays less activity at protein kinase A (PKA) and pyruvate kinase (PK) (IC50 values are 2.0 and 0.70 µM respectively).Also β1.3 subunit of Kv 1.5 channel inhibitor (IC50 = 12.4 µM) and non-competitive nicotonic cholinergic receptor antagonist (approx IC50 = 0.031 µM).
