Product Usage Information

Tyrphostin AG-490 is supplied as a lyophilized powder. For a 50 mM stock, reconstitute the 10 mg in 679.58 μl DMSO. Working concentrations and length of treatment can vary depending on the desired effect, but it is typically used at 10-100 μM for 1-24 hr.

Storage: Store lyophilized or in solution at -20ºC, desiccated. In lyophilized form, the chemical is stable for 24 months. Once in solution, use within 3 months to prevent loss of potency. Aliquot to avoid multiple freeze/thaw cycles.

Product Description

Molecular Weight:

294.30 g/mol



Molecular Formula:


Tyrphostin AG-490 is a membrane soluble protein tyrosine kinase inhibitor that primarily blocks Jak2 (IC50 = 10 μM) and Jak3 (IC50 = 20 μM) kinases (1,2). Research studies demonstrate that tyrphostin AG-490 inhibits proliferation and expansion of T cells (3). Unlike many other kinase inhibitors, tyrphostin AG-490 does not block a number of lymphocytic tyrosine kinases, such as Lck, Lyn, Btk, Syk, Jak1, Tyk2, or Src kinase (1,4). Additional studies indicate that tyrphostin AG-490 also selectively inhibits the EGFR (IC50 = 2 μM) and ErbB2 (IC50 = 13.5 μM) receptor tyrosine kinases (5).
