Product overview

  • Name
    BVT 948
  • Short description
    Non-competitive irreversible PTP inhibitor
  • Biological description
    Non-competitive irreversible protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTP) inhibitor (Ki = 1.2 µM for PTP-1B). Inhibits a broad spectrum of PTP's (IC50 values are 0.9, 1.7, 0.09, 1.5 and 0.7 µM for PTP-1B, TCPTP, SHP-2, LAR and YopH respectively). Inhibits several cytochrome P450 isoforms and suppresses MMP-9 and blocks TPA-induced NF-κB activation. Exhibits no activity for MAPK. Enhances insulin sensitivity. Cell permeable.
