Enzastaurin | PKC inhibitor

Enzastaurin (170364-57-5) is a potent and selective PKCβ inhibitor.  IC50 = 6, 39, 83 and 110 nM, for PKCβ, PKCα, PKCγ and PKCε respectively.1 Induces apoptosis in multiple myeloma cell lines via inhibition of the AKT signaling pathway.2 Induces mitotic missegregation and preferential cytotoxicity in colorectal cancer cells with chromosomal instability.3 Attenuates amphetamine-stimulated dopamine efflux.4 Inhibits blood-brain barrier leakiness in a mouse model.5
