Application

AR-A014418 has been used as an inhibitor of glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3).

Biochem/physiol Actions

Glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3) is a serine/threonine kinase that has been implicated in pathological conditions such as diabetes and Alzheimer′s disease. GSK3 inhibitor, AR-A014418, inhibits GSK3 (IC50 = 104 nM), in an ATP-competitive manner (Ki = 38 nM). AR-A014418 does not significantly inhibit cdk2 or cdk5 (IC50 > 100 μM) or 26 other kinases, demonstrating high specificity for GSK3.
