- Alomone Labs SB 203580 inhibits the phosphorylation of Elk1 and Atf2 via p38 in 3T3-L1 cells.Cells were grown to 70% confluence and serum starved for 3 h. The cells were then incubated for 2 h with various concentrations of SB 203580 (#S-370) and stimulated with 5 µM Anisomycin (#A-520). Cell proteins were resolved by SDS-PAGE and probed with anti-phospho-p38 MAPK, antip38 MAPK, anti-phospho-Elk1 and anti-phospho-Atf2 as indicated. The phosphorylation of Elk1 and Atf2 decreased in a dose-dependent manner.

Scientific background SB203580 is highly selective and cell permeable pyridinyl imidazole that inhibits the activity of MAP kinase homologs - p38 (stress-activated protein kinase II/HOG1) and p54 (stress-activated protein kinase I/c-Jun N-terminal kinase) with IC50 values of 50 and 500 nM for p38/SAPK2a and p38/SAPK2b respectively.1-6 SB203580 also inhibits the phosphorylation and activation of protein kinase B (PKB, also known as Akt) by inhibiting the PKB kinase, phosphoinositide-dependent protein kinase 1 (IC50 3-5 µM).7-9
