Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: PF-956980 is an ATP-competitive, reversible pan-JAK inhibitor . It is a useful commercially available JAK inhibitor tool. In addition to being an inhibitor of kinase activity, it is also reported to dose- and time-dependently reduce levels of JAK2/3 proteins (but not JAK1, as determined by Western blot) in human PBMCs, perhaps via modulating JAK2/3 synthesis . This latter activity seems to be unique to PF-956980, as there are no published reports of depletion of JAK isozymes by any of the other JAK inhibitors (such as tofacitinib).
Ligand Activity Visualisation Charts
These are box plot that provide a unique visualisation, summarising all the activity data for a ligand taken from ChEMBL and GtoPdb across multiple targets and species. Click on a plot to see the median, interquartile range, low and high data points. A value of zero indicates that no data are available. A separate chart is created for each target, and where possible the algorithm tries to merge ChEMBL and GtoPdb targets by matching them on name and UniProt accession, for each available species. However, please note that inconsistency in naming of targets may lead to data for the same target being reported across multiple charts.✖
