Product overview

  • Name
    SB 216763
  • Short description
    Potent, selective cell permeable GSK-3 inhibitor. Promotes mouse ESC pluripotency.
  • Biological description
    Potent and selective cell permeable, ATP competitive GSK-3 inhibitor (IC50 = 34 nM for GSK-3α). Equally effective at GSK-3α as GSK-3β. Displays little or no activity at 24 other serine/threonine and tyrosine protein kinases. Additionally stimulates glycogen synthesis (EC50 = 3.6 μM). Also promotes mouse embryonic stem cell pluripotency and displays anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties.
