Description: Purvalanol A is a potent CDK inhibitor, which effectively suppresses Src-mediated transformation by inhibiting both CDKs and c-Src. indicating that the activation of CDKs contributes to the c-Src transformation. Purvalanol A suppressed the c-Src activity as effectively as the Src-selective inhibitor PP2, and that it reverted the transformed morphology to a nearly normal shape with less cytotoxicity than PP2. Purvalanol A induced a strong G2-M arrest, whereas PP2 weakly acted on the G1-S transition. Furthermore, when compared with PP2, purvalanol A more effectively suppressed the growth of human colon cancer HT29 and SW480 cells, in which Src family kinases and CDKs are activated.
