Bioactivity Comments
Inhibits amylois beta production with low nanomolar potency in cellular and cell-free assays of gamma-secretase function, and displaces a tritiated analog of GSI-953 from enriched gamma-secretase enzyme complexes with similar potency. Cellular assays of Notch cleavage show 16-fold selectivity over APP cleavage [1].
