PP2 is a potent and selective inhibitor of Src-family kinases. This small molecule inhibits Lck (IC50 = 4 nM), Fyn (IC50 = 5 nM), and Hck (IC50 = 5 nM) with little to no effect on ZAP-70 (IC50 > 100 µM) and JAK2 (IC50 > 50 µM) (1). Members of the Src family are involved in the regulation of cellular excitability and synaptic plasticity. Inhibition of Src family nonreceptor protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs) can decrease epileptiform activity, making PP2 an important compound when studying epilepsy and antiepileptic therapies (2).
