Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Jak-2 protein tyrosine kinase (PTK) inhibitor. Inhibits interleukin 2 (IL-2) driven mitogenesis and triggers apoptosis of tumor cells in Sezary syndrome, a leukemic variant of cutaneous T cell lymphoma.

Caution

Photosensitive

Packaging

25 mg in poly bottle

5 mg in glass bottle

Preparation Note

Tyrphostin AG 490 is soluble in ethanol at 5 mg/ml and is insoluble in water. It is also soluble in DMSO at 10 mg/ml and yields a clear, yellow solution.

Application

Tyrphostin AG has been used to block IL-6 cytokine signaling to study its effects on glial cell reactivity5. AG 490 has also been used as a JAK2 inhibitor in human umbilical vein endothelial cells6.
