GF-109203X (133052-90-1) is a potent and selective protein kinase C inhibitor (IC50 = 10 nM; cAMP-dependent protein kinase IC50 = 2 μM and phosphorylase kinase IC50 = 0.7 μM). Inactive against the tyrosine kinases EGFR, PGDFR and Insulin receptor. Potent inhibitor of GSK-3β in cell lysates (IC50 = 360nM) and GSK-3β immunoprecipitates (IC50 = 170nM) derived from rat epididymal adipocytes.2 Cell permeable.
