Description: SB525334 is a potent and selective inhibitor of the transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) receptor, activin receptor-like kinase (ALK5). SB525334 inhibited ALK5 kinase activity with an IC(50) of 14.3 nM and was approximately 4-fold less potent as an inhibitor of ALK4 (IC(50) = 58.5 nM). SB-525334 was inactive as an inhibitor of ALK2, ALK3, and ALK6 (IC(50) > 10,000 nM). In cell-based assays, SB-525334 (1 microM) blocked TGF-beta1-induced phosphorylation and nuclear translocation of Smad2/3 in renal proximal tubule cells and inhibited TGF-beta1-induced increases in plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) and procollagen alpha1(I) mRNA expression in A498 renal epithelial carcinoma cells.
