CAS#: 496864-16-5

Description: Aloisine A is a potent and selective CDK/GSK-3 inhibitor. Aloisine A inhibits cell proliferation by arresting cells in both G1 and G2. IC50 data of Aloisine A: Cdc2 (CDK1)/cyclin B (IC50 = 150nM), Cdk2/cyclin A (IC50 = 120nM), Cdk2/cyclin E (IC50 = 400nM), Cdk5/p25 (IC50 = 200nM), Cdk5/p35 (IC50 = 160nM), and GSK-3α (IC50 = 500nM). Aloisine A also inhibits GSK-3β (IC50 = 650nM) and JNK (c-Jun N-terminal kinase) (IC50~3-10μM). Aloisine A blocks the cell cycle in both G1 and G2 phase.
