  • Inhibition of GSK-3β promotes Runx2 induction. Vascularsmoothmusclecells(VSMCs) were treated with or without IM-12(3 μM) for 24h, and cells treated with β-GP (10 mM) were as a positive control. The cell lysates were immunoblotted with antibodies against Runx2 and β-actin, respectively.

    Exp Cell Res, 2016, 345(2):206-17.. IM-12 purchased from Selleck.

Biological Activity

Description IM-12 is a selective GSK-3β inhibitor with IC50 of 53 nM, and also enhances canonical Wnt signalling.
GSK-3β [1]
(Cell-free assay)
53 nM
In vitro

In hNPCs, IM-12 inhibits GSK-3β activity with IC50 of 3.8 μM and subsequently increases β-catenin concentration significantly. Through the activation of canonical Wnt signalling pathway, IM-12 promotes the neuronal differentiation of human neural progenitor cells. [1]

GSK-3β activity assay:

IC50 of new synthesised compound IM-12 to GSK-3β is determined by a luminometric GSK-3β activity assay. Briefly, compounds are tested in different concentrations diluted in assay buffer containing final concentrations of: 4 mM MOPS pH 7.2; 0.4 mM EDTA; 1 mM EGTA; 2.5 mM β-glycerophosphate; 4 mM MgCl2; 40 μM BSA; 0.05 mM DTT. Four microlitres of diluted compounds are added to 25 μM pGS-2 peptide substrate, 20 ng recombinant GSK-3β and 1 μM ATP to a total assay volume of 40 μl. The enzymatic reaction is stopped after 30 min of incubation at 30 °C by adding 40 μl KinaseGlo. The luminometric signal is allowed to stabilise for 10 min and the measured with a Glomax® 96 Microplate Luminometer.

  • Cell lines: ReNcell VM cells
  • Concentrations: 3 μM
  • Incubation Time: 72 hours
  • Method: To measure viable cells, 50-100 μL of cell suspension is analyzed using CASY technology with the appropriate program. ReNcell VM cells are seeded at a defined cell number and proliferated for 24 h. Then the medium is changed to proliferation medium with added substances at indicated concentrations. The cell number was determined every 24 h. Cells were exposed to the added drugs during the whole experiment, whereas the media is changed every 24 h.

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.
