NVS-PAK1-1 is a potent allosteric inhibitor of p21-activated kinase PAK1, a serine-threonine kinase that is upregulated in many cancers. NVS-PAK1-1 has an IC50
value of 5 nM for dephoshorylated PAK1 and 6 nM for phosphorylated PAK1 in an in vitro
dephosphorylation assay. NVS-PAK1-1 showed good selectivity against 442 other kinases including PAK2. NVS-PAK1-1 has generally good physicochemical properties, but was metabolized by rat liver microsomes, so may not be useful for in vivo
work. For full characterization details, please visit the NVS-PAK1-1 probe summary
on the Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC) website.
