Roscovitine | p34/cdc2 inhibitor

Roscovitine (186692-46-6) is a potent and selective inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases displaying higher potency and selectivity compared to olomoucine.  p34 cdc2 IC50 = 0.2 µM.  Also inhibits p33cdk2 and p33cdk5.1  Anti-angiogenic.2 Prevents PPARg S273 phosphorylation, promoting browning of white adipose tissue.3 Enhances peripheral nerve regrowth.4
