|Description||Bisindolylmaleimide I (GF109203X) is a potent PKC inhibitor with IC50 of 20 nM, 17 nM, 16 nM, and 20 nM for PKCα, PKCβI, PKCβII, and PKCγ in cell-free assays, respectively, showing more than 3000-fold selectivity for PKC as compared to EGFR, PDGFR and insulin receptor.|
|Features||Greater selectivity than PKC inhibitor staurosporine. GF109203X is a chemical probe for studying PKC signal transduction pathways. Potential for use in a variety of cancers.|
GF109203X, as an ATP-competitive PKC inhibitor, prevents platelet aggregation induced by stimuli that activate PKC, and has the potential as a tool for studying the involvement of PKC in signal transduction pathways.  GF 109203X produces reversal activity on P-glycoprotein and MRP -mediated multidrug resistance.   PKC inhibition by GF109203X significantly reduces carbachol-stimulated ERK1/2 activation and the subsequent proliferation of SNU-407 colon cancer cells. 
|In vivo||GF109203X (10 μg/mouse, i.pl.) dose-dependently inhibits BK-induced mechanical allodynia in Wistar rats. |
Assay of protein kinase C:Protein kinase C is arrayed by measuring 32PI transferred from [gamma-32PI] ATP to lysine-rich histone type Ill-s. The reaction mixture (80 μL) contained 50 mM Tris-HCI. pH 7.4, 100 μM CaCl2, 10 mM MgCI2, 37.5 μL/mL histone type Ill-s, 10 μM [gamma-32PI] ATP (1250 cpm/pmol), 31 μM bovine brain phosphatidylserine and 0.5 μM 1,2 sn-dioleylglycerol. Fifteen μL of purified PKC (final concentration in assay 0.38 μg/mL) is added to the incubation mixture. After 10 min at 30°C, the reaction is stopped by addition of 30 μL of casein 30 mg/mL and 0.9 ml of 12% trichloroacetic acid. The acid precipitable material is collected by centrifugation, dissolved in 1N NaOH (100μL) and precipitated again with 1 ml of 12% trichloroacetic acid. The pellet is dissolved in 1N NaOH (100μL) and 32P incorporation is measured by scintillation counting in Aquasol.

Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
