CHIR-99021 | GSK3 beta inhibitor

CHIR-99021 (252917-06-9) is a potent and selective inhibitor of glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK3β, IC50 = 5 nM) and GSK3α (IC50 = 10 nM)1. Induces osteoblastogenesis, increases mineralization and inhibits adipogenesis in ST2 cells2. Promotes replication and survival of pancreatic beta cells3. CHIR-99021 enhances differentiation and reduces proliferation of adult human olfactory epithelium neural precursors4. Cell permeable and active in vivo.
