TBK1/IKKε inhibitor

BX795 inhibits the catalytic activity of TBK1/IKKε by blocking their phosphorylation. BX795, an aminopyrimidine compound, was developed as an inhibitor of 3-phosphoinositide-dependent kinase 1 (PDK1) [1]. It was recently shown to be a potent inhibitor of the IKK-related kinases, TANK-binding kinase 1 (TBK1) and IKKε, and hence of IRF3 activation and IFN-β production [2, 3].


CAS number: 702675-74-9
Working concentration: 100 nM - 10 μM
Solubility: DMSO (10 mg/ml)
Molecular weight:


• 5 mg BX795


B16-Blue IFN-alpha/beta cells were incubated with varying concentrations of BX795

B16-Blue™  IFN-α/β cells were incubated for 6h with varying concentrations of BX795 prior to overnight stimulation with 1µg/ml of 5'ppp-dsRNA or 1.10e4 U/ml mIFN-α.
Levels of reporter SEAP protein in the supernatant were mesured at O.D. 655nm after incubation with QUANTI-Blue™.
