Comment: Ruxolitinib is a Type-1 kinase inhibitor and was first approved by the US FDA in 2011. Ruxolitinib has high potency against Janus kinases 1 and 2 (JAK1, JAK2), as well as against the related family member, tyrosine kinase 2 (TYK2) . Inhibitory activity against JAK3 is only slightly reduced compared to the other three family kinases.
Marketed formulations may contain ruxolitinib phosphate (PubChem CID 25127112).
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.✖
